Brendan O’Carroll - Lifetime Achievement for Comedy Recipient IFTA Gala Television Awards


"To receive such an accolade in my home town is sensational. I am proud to accept this award, especially when I see the list of those whom have already been so awarded.. including Jim Sheridan, whose work I so admire and who has done so much for young Irish actors, writers and indeed the whole industry. To be considered in that league is the premiership. Thank you IFTA.”
