Sarah Lynch’s sudden death from a car accident on February 15th 2021 aged just 17, sent shockwaves through New York’s Irish community.

Sarah was a student at the Erin Loughran School of Irish Music in Pearl River and Woodlawn and performed with the New York Céilí Band at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann in Sligo.

“Sarah Lynch has been a tremendous and integral part of our lives and the New York ceili bands through the last 10 years. A role model and a leader in every way. Always encouraging and welcoming to every musician and dancer.”
