Walsh performed at festivals including Electric Picnic and Body & Soul, and supported Hozier on his Irish tour in 2013.

Walsh’s family posted a message on Facebook today, praising his “absolute dedication, insatiable energy and infallible passion”.

Conor’s imprint on music will continue to flow long past his time, and the impression he left on all who knew him is sure to linger in minds and hearts as distinctly as the echo of the notes he leaves behind him. We will all miss Conor dearly, as we try to come to terms with losing a talented artist and an outstanding friend who still had so much to offer.


His funeral will take place in Swinford on Tuesday.
