Brendan O'Carroll told how it's the "grip on home" that makes his Mrs Browns Boys character Agnes Brown relatable to Irish viewers and admits "she's never left Finglas".

Speaking to Ryan Tubridy on Friday's Late Late Show  about the show, the 64-year-old star said there is a special bond between Irish audiences and the award-winning series.

"We get to go to Australia, New Zealand, Canada, America, and all over the place with the show. When Irish people come to the show, they feel like they are coming home.

"We go and we do the show on the BBC and they haven’t a clue in the UK where Finglas is but I don’t care," he added.

And viewers seemed to agree, one tweeting "Plenty knock @MrsBrownsBoys what a man Brendan O'Carroll & his family are, they give to charity & make a difference and he never forgets Finglas which is full of people like him & them."

While another touched on his donation to cardiac screening for kids saying, "Serious kudos to @brendanMrsBrown that’s amazing spirit and generosity giving such a donation to cardiac screening for kids and adolescents."

"I know where it is, and the people in Finglas know, that I will never ever deny Finglas," Brendan added.

"It's that grip on home, If you’re from Kilkenny – you’re from Kilkenny. If you’re from Wexford – you’re from Wexford.

"There’s a fabulous Irish club in Toronto and the motto on the club is 'Country first, county second’ – that’s very much what Irish people are like when they are away.

"That’s even what we are like when we are at home," he added.

To mark 20 years of Agnes Brown, Friday night's show also featured an energetic performance from Mrs Brown's Boys D'Musical, which featured cast members including Jennifer Gibney, Eilish O'Carroll,  and Danny O'Carroll, along with a host of familiar faces.
