The death was announced on Thursday, July 11th of the late Brendan Grace.
While from Dublin, the immensely popular comedian had strong links to Clare, running Brendan Grace’s Bar in Killaloe for many years up until 2011, as well as living in the area.
But as Brendan told Morning Focus in December 2015, his links to – and love for – Co. Clare was much deeper than that.
We are sharing this excerpt from that interview here as a tribute to the late Brendan Grace.
May he rest in peace.
