People Have Been Sharing Lovely Memories Of Brendan Grace After News Of His Death Broke This Morning

James Fenton

Ireland woke up to the sad news this morning that legendary comedian Brendan Grace has passed away at the age of 68.

Born in 1951, Brendan was raised in Dublin’s Liberties area before going on to become one of the country’s most well-known entertainers. His schoolboy Bottler was perhaps his most famous act and he is also fondly remembered for his star turn as the brilliantly obnoxious Father Fintan Stack in Father Ted.

In recent weeks, news emerged that Brendan had been diagnosed with cancer and since the news of his death broke today, people have been sharing their memories of the much-loved comedian online.

Brendan is survived by his wife Eileen as well as his children and grandchildren.
