    It’s been nice to see the genuine and almost uniformly positive effect one single person had on the lives of others. I don’t think even Joe Dolan was this admired tbh

      I think I would agree. Joe had fans go wild, but Brendan’s always seemed to have a great respect for him, something deeper.

      I think also that as a comedian he walked that very clever line of being just risque enough without being vulgar to be funny even at family friendly events.

      It was from Brendan I first heard the joke about the cold, saying it was so cold, a monkey knocked on the door asking if he could borrow a welder…

      definitely someone who’ll be remembered fondly

      sorry but that mural is seriously brutal, a bit like the Ronaldo bronze I wouldn’t have a remotest clue that was him

    I heard about this mural before seeing it…heard him on the radio, he said that B graces family came around in a stretch limo to thank him…he was just starting it, obviously…
