Writing on behalf of Irish musician Danny O’Flaherty, who is in recovery

Irish MusicianDear Friends,

I’m writing on behalf a dear friend we share in common, Danny O’Flaherty. If you know Danny like I do, you know he is full of compassion, grace, enthusiasm, and love. I asked Danny if I could send this email, because I know you will be as moved by this as I am.

You may have heard the news that Danny was recently in a car accident. His wife, Lisa, tells us that after multiple tests, he has been diagnosed with a severe concussion and post-concussion syndrome, and he will have to have an MRI to rule out any further head/neck trauma.

His doctors expect him to make a full recovery, but they have told him he needs serious rest for the next several months. Of course, Danny has been a traveling musician his whole life, sharing the joy of his Irish music to the rest of the world with boundless energy. So you can imagine how difficult it is for him to rest!

Danny and Lisa have asked me to thank everyone for the outpouring of support they have received,and to let you know that Danny will have to cancel his shows for the next several months. This includes his popular Celtic Christmas celebrations, which would have been in their 25th year. As you can imagine, this is a huge blow, on top of everything else.

Danny has given me so much over the years, that I have decided to give back. There is no pressure, but I know many of our friends will want to help out like I have. It’s easy to do – you simply follow this link, and make your donation, in whatever amount you choose:


Danny also loves all the emails, Facebook messages and calls he has received. He is not well enough yet to respond, but he tells me how much it means to him to have support from so many wonderful people.

Thank you for taking the time to read my letter, about someone we both love who needs our help. God bless.

    Danny and Lisa, I just found out about the accident yesterday. I asked Liam about you, Danny, but got no information. I’m so sorry about the accident. Just found this info on Internet. You will both be in my prayers and thoughts. Take good care. If you see visitors, I’d like to visit, only if you both allow me to. I hope the new year will bring a great turn for ya’ll! Very Sincerely, Susan

  • Hope the best for y’all, in my prayers!

  • What was the date of Danny accident, it was never said.
    Danny did post on July 2, he was still in rehab. Is he recovering still.
    Many of his listeners, music appreciators miss him much,
    and wish him well health. Tell him he is loved and missed and appreciated.

  • He is one of the best friends I have ever had….too bad we live so far apart….I in Michigan….This note will be short, but I can’t say enough to describe his kindness and respect for others……
    Keep in touch on his progress…Notice I said PROGRESS and NOT regress!
