As you may be aware, David Taylor has decided to retire as chairman of the Derravaragh Music Association after 25 years service.We are fortunate in having found a new chairperson, Jane Massy, who has wide experience at administration and a great knowledge of music, and also that Bridget, David’s wife, has kindly offered to continue as the Treasurer of the DMA for at least another year.

We are also delighted to announce that John Fairleigh has agreed to join the DMA committee. 


Patron: Valerie Pakenham

Chaired by: Jane Massy
