"No better guitar player" - Tributes paid to Dubliners musician Eamonn Campbell

The sad news was confirmed in a post on Facebook on Wednesday night by The Dublin Legends, a band Campbell had been performing with since The Dubliners retired in 2012.

In a social media statement, his bandmates with The Dublin Legends wrote: "Eamonn was a true Legend and brilliant guitar player". He passed away peacefully surrounded by his wife and family. He also worked as a producer for Irish music acts such as Foster and Allen and Philomena Begley.

The 70-year-old died in a hospital in the Netherlands surrounded by his family.
