Big Tom McBride who grew up on the family farm passed away aged 81.

Tributes continue to pour in this morning for Irish country music star, Big Tom McBride who has passed away aged eighty-one. The McBride family confirmed the news in a statement published on the Facebook page of Big Tom Productions earlier morning.

“It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear father Big Tom McBride(RIP) this morning. Dad passed away peacefully in the company of his family. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. May he rest in peace.”

The tragic news comes following the death of Tom’s wife, Rose who passed away on January, 30th, 2018.

Tom, a Monaghan native, grew up on the family farm and achieved success in the sporting field. He ventured to the U.K to work in the construction industry. He later purchased his first guitar and began singing in local pubs, before the death of his younger brother witnessed him return home to work the family farm.
