15 years ago, Ireland lost a phenomonal comedian when Dermot Morgan died from a heart attack aged 45. Today, we remember his contribution to comedy, both in Ireland and internationally, which is missed by fans worldwide.
First coming to prominence for his part in the RTÉ show The Live Mike, he later went on to have a comedy slot in the Saturday night chat show Kenny Live.
Many will remember religiously tuning in to listen to Scrap Saturday in the 1980s, a Saturday morning radio comedy show in which Morgan and others mocked policians, businessmen and media establishment at the time. Famous for it's 'Haughey/Mara' skit, RTÉ axed the popular show leading to a public outcry.
Morgan left with us a fantastic legacy of great comedy and finally achieved international popularity for his role as Father Ted Crilly in the acclaimed Channel 4 sitcom Father Ted, for which he won a BAFTA award.
The RTÉ Republic of Comedy YouTube channel have added loads of clips in memory of the late Dermot Morgan.
