Mick Moloney (1944-2022)

In Memoriam, News from the Field

We are sad to share the news of the loss of Michael “Mick” Moloney, folklorist and champion of Irish traditional music and culture, who passed away at the age of 77. Moloney taught Irish-American Studies at New York University, and his materials are housed at the Archives of Irish America. Read Moloney’s obituaries from the Gluckman Ireland House (at NYU), the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Irish Echo. Listen to an interview with Mick Moloney on NPR’s Fresh Air.
