The Shannon Irish Show honours a special man: Don Kack

Don Kack and his trusty Martin guitar take to the stage at the 1999 Shannon Irish Show.

Don Kack isn't the kind of man that you would see standing alone on centre stage in the Shannon Irish Show, belting his heart out to a traditional Irish shanty. Nor, for that matter, would he ever be caught dancing. But despite his shy demeanour, Don is the man who, for the last 48 years, has been one of the rocks on which the Shannon Irish Show's success is built.
