In his later years, Frasier star John Mahoney, who has died aged 77, became an honorary Galway resident, appearing onstage at the Galway Arts Festival upon numerous occasions and visiting the city and its surrounding countryside regularly.

In 2014, Mahoney spoke to Miriam O'Callaghan on RTÉ Radio 1 about his life and career, and his love for the City Of Tribes. By way of tribute to one of the greatest sitcom stars of them all, a versatile character actor and formidable theatre veteran, you can revisit the interview above.
