Class,Paddy’s enthusiasm was infectious, everyone wanted to work with them. Remember seeing them in our local parish hall when I was about 10, the place was packed and I was completely  star struck. Derek Bell in that video, used to come in to the Mrs in the bank in Shaftsbury square. She remembers him fondly as a total gentleman. Both sadly missed.

RIP Máire and Brendan.
Brendan was a regular and most interesting guest on Gaybo's LL show.
