RTÉ Statement on the death of Frank Kelly
Noel Curran, Director General, RTÉ, has paid tribute to Frank Kelly:
"Frank Kelly was an Irish television institution whose career spanned decades and, in later years, countries. He was a versatile writer, satirist, performer and actor, and became a household name to loyal audiences of classics such as Wanderly Wagon, Halls Pictorial Weekly, and Glenroe. And of course, he achieved iconic status to for audiences around the world as Fr Jack in Channel 4 sitcom, Father Ted. I would like to extend my sincere sympathies on behalf of RTÉ to his wife Bairbre, his seven children and 17 grandchildren."
