Ireland's Mcgalligog has issued the following announcement about parting ways with Daragh Kenny:
"Dear Mcgalligog fans,
"Daragh here, with the saddest heart I must inform you of my departure from the band. My reasons are absolutely nothing musical or to do with in fighting as with most departures. Some of you may not know I have a condition called Cystic Fibrosis which has weakened me over time and has affected my playing to the point where I cannot go on with the gigging lifestyle, which kills me because I love it so much and leaving the band is the last thing I wish to do but it is my only option as to stay would completely bring the band down.
"I've met so many so many new friends since I joined in late 09 and I will always try to attend future gigs by the lads, I've been considering this a few months are really wanted to go off with a bang so im glad we got to concur Germany!
"To conclude, Mcgalligog are the future of irish metal, if you don't think so you are a foolish fool! I will always still be a part of the band and hang out with the lads, they've grown to be part of my close friends and nothing will change that."
