    He was just a funny man.
    Fair play always to Linehan and Matthews for giving that generation of actorrs and mainly comedians cameos and small parts in Father Ted: Brendan as Fintan Stack, Norton as Noel Furlong, Joe Rooney as Damo (leading Dougal stray), Mick Redmond, one of the funniest I ever saw live, Father Stone, Gerry McSorley (Father Todd Unctious), Niall Buggy as Henry Seellors, Jim Norton as Len Brennan, and of course the great Frank Kelly.

    I was at Brendan Grace way back in the 70s in my local hotel.

    ​​​I never laughed as much before or since.

    RIP

    Confirmed now. RIP Brendan

    He knew our next door neighbours when I was growing up, and played guitar/songs at sessions in our house a couple of times before he was famous. He always seemed like a nice, down to earth guy
