RTÉ One, Monday 8th October, 7.30pm, 2 x 25"


Remembering those that have gone before – Cloch le Carn takes a constructive but not always uncritical look at public figures who've made a contribution to Irish society in their lifetimes.

Cloch Le Carn - David Kelly

In February 2012, David Kelly, one of Ireland's most charismatic, versatile and iconic actors died, at the age of 82, after a short illness. He left behind a body of work that will be long remembered in film, television, radio and on stage and was proud of the fact that he never retired. He was a dapper dresser who always wore a bow-tie and said that denim was "the work of the devil." Cloch le Carn looks back at the life and times of David Kelly through the eyes of those who knew him best.

Cloch Le Carn - Joe Lynch

Joe Lynch ended his career as a household name, maybe better known as Dinny Byrne, the Wicklow farmer he played in Glenroe and before in Bracken for so many years. But Joe was more than Dinny - an actor, a singer, a comedian - theatre, radio, TV he was a multi-talented performer but always a Corkman! Now more than a decade after his death he's still fondly remembered by his friends and legion of fans.
