    Paddy Moloney, the founder of The Chieftains, has died.

    Originally from Donneycarney, in north Co Dublin, Moloney was from a musical family and began playing the tin whistle and uilleann pipes when he was young.

    After he left school he took a job with Baxendales, a large building firm, to support his musical hobby, and it was here he met his future wife, Rita O’ Reilly.

    He formed several groups with other musicians in duets and trios, and in 1962 he founded The Chieftains alongside the original lineup of Seán Potts, Martin Fay, David Fallon and Mick Tubridy.

    The Chieftains went on to become one of the best-known Irish traditional groups in the world, winning six Grammys as well as a number of other awards.

  • I ndilchuimhne Paddy Moloney - The Chieftains | Geantraí na Nollag 2001 | TG4

    4:08

    I ndilchuimhne Paddy Moloney (1938 - 2021).
    In memory of Paddy Moloney. May he rest in peace.

    Tá duine de thaoisigh an cheoil thraidisiúnta imithe ar shlí na fírinne.

    Máirín Fahy (fidil) & Seán Keane (fidil) leis an grúpa mór cáiliúil Na Chieftains, i dTigh Matt Molloy, Cathair na Mart, Maigh Eo i 2001 agus iad ag críochnú amach le cúpla steip damhsa uaidh Máirín Fahy.

    Paddy Moloney was the founder and leader of The Chieftains. He grew up in Donnycarney, north Co. Dublin. His love of Irish music came from his parents’ native Co. Laois and the music that surrounded him at home. His first instrument was a plastic tin whistle and by the age of eight, he was learning to play the uilleann pipes from the great pipe master, Leo Rowsome. It was when he heard Leon Rowsome, son of Leo, play his pipes in the Scoil Mhuire school band in Marino, that he began to beg his parents to have Leo make him his very first set.

    After he left school, Paddy, always aware that he needed a nine to five job to support his musical hobby, took a job with Baxendales, a large building firm, where he worked in accounting. It was here he met his future wife, Rita O’ Reilly.

    Paddy always had a vision from his early days playing. A sound he wanted to create, a sound that had never been heard before. He knew it would take much experimentation with different combinations of instruments and so he formed several groups with other musicians in duets and trios. In particular he played with Seán Potts, Michael Tubridy and Seán Keane in various combinations who would all later become Chieftains.

    But it was not until he had formed the original line up for The Chieftains in 1962 that he finally achieved the sound that had eluded him, a sound created by Paddy’s inspired choice of instruments, styles and players. It was only at this point did Paddy feel ready to give his group the title The Chieftains (a name which was inspired by the Irish poet John Montague) and confident enough to take his band into studio to record the very first of many, award winning albums. This recording came about at the invitation of his good friend, the Hon. Garech de Brun for his record label Claddagh Records.

    The sound that Paddy created some 40 years ago has become the instantly recognisable sound of The Chieftains, which lives on fresh today and has always set them apart from any other traditional line up throughout out the world. It is simply the sound of The Chieftains.

    In 1968 and having recorded a number of albums with The Chieftains, Paddy decided to leave Baxendales to work full time in the music industry as the Managing Director of Claddagh Records. He ran the label for seven years until 1975 during which time he helped to develop Claddagh’s catalogue and also a market for it. During this time he also produced, co-produced or supervised 45 albums for the Claddagh label in folk, traditional, classical, poetry and spoken word recordings.

    We have lost a giant of Irish music and he will be sorely missed. Go raibh maith agat as an gceol Paddy.

    Ní bheidh a leithéid arís ann. Paddy Moloney R.I.P.

    3:25

    Live from WGBH in Boston, legendary Irish traditional band, The Chieftains, perform The Frost is All Over.

    The Chieftains formed in Dublin in November 1962, by Paddy Moloney, Sean Potts and Michael Tubridy. The band had their first rehearsals at Moloney's house, with Tubridy, Martin Fay and David Fallon. Their sound, which is almost entirely instrumental and largely built around uilleann pipes, has become synonymous with traditional Irish music and they are regarded as having helped popularise Irish music across the world

    Lyrics:

    What would you do if the kettle boiled over?
    What would I do but to fill it again
    What would you do if the cows eat the clover?
    What would I do but to set it again
    The praties are dug and the frost is all over
    Kitty lie over close to the wall
    How would you like to be married to a solider?
    Kitty lie over close to the wall

    What would you do if you married a solider?
    What would I do only follow his gun
    What would you do if he died on the ocean?
    What would I do only marry again
    The praties all boil and the herrings are roasted
    Kitty lie over close to the wall
    You to be drunk and I to be sober
    Kitty lie over close to the wall

    What would you do if the kettle boiled over?
    What would I do but to fill it again
    What would you do if the cows eat the clover?
    What would I do but to set it again
    The praties are dug and the frost is all over
    Kitty lie over close to the wall
    How would you like to be married to a solider?
    Kitty lie over close to the wall

    In 1978 as a teenager I bought one of my first LP's: THE CHIEFTAINS 2, their second album (released in 1969, a real folk revival year).
    In 2004 DRANOUTER FESTIVAL (BE) gave me the unique chance to play music together with the musicians I adore.
    Thanks Dranouter, for this fantastic opportunity, and thank you, PADDY MOLONEY & The Chieftains, for all your marvelous music.
