I think he was one of the first to make being Irish 'cool' in the UK.
Before then, we were then treated like us Irish now treat travellers.
He helped to normalize us, make us Irish, make us acceptable..

With all respect to Sean Hughes, surely Val Doonican, Terry Wogan and Dave Allen were ahead of him in that respect.

Is cool losing its meaning? Sean Hughes had street cred but what about how did the the genuinely influential Engkish cuktural icons view Ireland.

The immortal, greatest, charistmatic, rebellious poet of the 20th century, John Lennon.

And his iconic partner who was more acceptable to comfortable middle England, Sir Paul McCartney.

The ordinary English despised the self-hating, despicable cowards many of us were brain-washed into becoming by an unholy trinity of the church, FFGcruiser traitors and media propagandists for imperialists. Ironically escaping to England was one of the avenues open avoiding the nauseating, unctious, imassculating indoctrination.

Just getting end of his show last year on Radio 1.
He hadn't lost it.
He was funny and sharp.

Sadly but very funnily his running theme was death
