Tributes paid to Con Cluskey of Dublin group The Bachelors, who has died aged 80


The Bachelors scored a No.1 hit in the United kingdom with ‘Diane’.

Tributes have been paid out on-line subsequent information of the death of Con Cluskey, a person of the founding users of Dublin pop group The Bachelors.

The group initially shaped in the late ’50s under the name The Harmonichords, and performed on The Ed Sullivan Demonstrate in the US, prior to transforming their title  to The Bachelors at the commencing of the ’60s. The trio – built up of Con (aka Conleth), his brother Declan Cluskey,  and John Stokes – experienced a key strike with ‘Diane’, which went to No.1 in the British isles and No.10 in the US in 1964.

In accordance to the group’s website, The Bachelors managed to outsell The Beatles in 1964 and 1965.

Declan Cluskey told RTÉ News that Con handed away peacefully on Friday.

Robbie Williams’ father, Pete Conway, is between those people who have paid out tribute, noting that he “invested a lot of happy hrs in his business in excess of the yrs.”
