The death took place at Sligo General Hospital on Saturday April 2nd 2011 of Noel Tansey,Gurteen. News of his passing was received with great sadness in the community and in the wider area as Noel was a accomplished musician and played regularly at many music sessions.
He was the drummer on the famous Coleman Country Ceili Band who toured America in the 1970's but later was better known as a flute/whistle player. A large number of traditional musicians played a tribute to him at his funeral Mass and at the graveside as did Patrick Feeney in song.His remains were removed from Perry's Funeral Home,Ballymote on Sunday evening to St Patrick's Church,Gurteen and after the funeral Mass on Monday celebrated by Fr. Joe Caulfield P.P. assisted by Fr Gerry Davey and Fr Jos Gavaghan,burial took place in Gurteen Cemetery.
He is survived by his wife Annie May,his sons Anthony and John,daughters Ann and Rosaleen,sons -in law daughter-in-law,grandchildren and many relations and friends to whom deepest sympathy is extended. May he rest in peace.
