ON 28 FEBRUARY 1998 Ireland lost a comedy legend.

Dermot Morgan died suddenly of a heart attack, just after filming his last scenes for the third and final series of Father Ted.

Before Father Ted of course there was Scrap Saturday, The Live Mike, his brilliant stand up and everything else in between.

So, on his anniversary, let’s remember….
