Was she not presenting things like Miss World etc years ago long before anyone in Ireland knew who she was

She presented a number of shows abroad. .One I remember was ''The Swan'' . .I also think she did America's top model.. Her name is Amanda Brunker and she was more popular in the states.

So many people seem to forget that he handcuffed a male model to a radiator and beat him up.
Like seriously, **** Boy George. He has still won awards since his conviction. If it was a woman he tied up and traumatised like that he'd be vilified and ruined.

Graham Norton (Walker) is completely Irish, as above poster said. Has a walkway in Bandon named after him.
So too was Wogan. Never played down his heritage. Ask any Irish who lived in the UK during the 70s and 80s and they appreciated the role Wogan played in suppressing Anti-Irish behaviour.
No sure what your narrow view of, being Irish entails.

Johnny resumed drinking his pint quietly.

''Father Ted'' and 'Mrs Brown's boys. . both more popular in the UK than Ireland.

''Father Ted'' has a cult like following.

I had a look at Jedward's following on twitter. . They are not popular anywhere it would appear. .Only got 60+ fans on twitter.

Dave Allen, I'm quite surprised to not see his name here, rose to prominence with the BBC and one of the very best stand up comedy acts. I don't think he got the same airtime with RTE and perhaps it was because of his mocking of the Catholic church, some of the skits being brilliant.

Last edited by bodhrandude; 25-03-2018 at 21:28. Reason: I put link to his bio from Wiki as it makes a very interesting read, I didn't know RTE banned him in 1977.
