In the heady days before the bust and just about every club had a corporate dinner, Gerry was almost unbookable. Would go round each table and guaranteed to pick someone out and tell a (usually unflattering) story about them. Place would be in stiches. A class act in full flow.

Funny enough I bumped into Gerry Donnelly at a match in South Derry on Wednesday night and he was in great form. I have his number if anyone ever needs it just pm me.

Our club had Tim Mc Garry at our 75th anniversary last year and he was Ok, funny enough depending on your humour. But Gerry was the MC and warm up act, and he was typically hilarious. Whole place in stitches.

One that brought the roof down was he was driving through a local village (rivals you could say, and adaptable to which function he is at) and he saw one of those blankets hanging out in a public place where people wish someone a happy birthday.

This one said "Happy 38th Birthday......Granny!"

Though as the man says, it's the way he tells them!

A lot of Gerry Donnelly fans here.
Is he 'Ulster' funny, or 'funny' funny?
Bear in mind, Give My Head Peace is still going.

We had Adrian Logan a long time ago and haven't a clue what he was like. Pat Spillane was over last year and everyone agreed he was the best guest we've ever had.

He might be cut out of the same cloth as Paddy Heaney of the Irish news, a mystery man
