Brendan Grace has died at the age of 68 following a battle with lung cancer.

The Dublin-born comedian was loved by audiences at home and abroad.

As well as his career in stand-up, he was also a talented singer.

Younger generations will probably best remember him as the iconic Fr. Fintan Stack in the sitcom Father Ted.

We were joined by Today FM presenter and comedian Mario Rosenstock, singer and senator Frances Black and documentary maker Brian Reddin, who made the documentary Brendan Grace - Funny Man, and who had been working on another with Brendan at the time of his passing.

They each shared their memories of him.
