As we reported this time last week, that sensational video of a bar in Kilorglin going crazy during a wake became something of a viral sensation.
For those that haven't seen it, it sees a gathered group in a small bar called Falvey's where a local man, Ger 'Farmer' Foley, used to frequent. After extolling his virtues, the barman then leads the group in a wild rendition of The Killers' Mr. Brightside.
The video became a huge hit with people and even Brandon Flowers of the Killers responded to the video. Last night saw the wife of Ger 'Farmer' Foley, Grainne, and his friend and the singer in question, Brian O'Sullivan, in the audience with Ray D'Arcy.
As Brian explained it, "emotions were running high after a few days of grieving - grieving that’s still continuing on as we speak now. I was only one of many musicians and singers and obviously the night I got up everyone was in good form. Now, I didn’t maybe mean to go as far as taking off my top - my good wife Audrey isn’t too happy about that! But Ger would have loved it."
Ger, who had suffered from Cystic Fibrosis, received a lung transplant which his wife, Grainne, believed had given him a new lease on life. "Becoming a donor is not a difficult decision, you tick a box on your driving license, and you can absolutely change lives."
