Stunning street mural of late comedian Brendan Grace appears in The Liberties

A stunning street mural of legendary comedian Brendan Grace has appeared in The Liberties in Dublin, after he passed away last Thursday.

The 68-year-old Irish actor, musician and comedian died after a short battle with lung cancer surrounded by his four children and wife, Eileen.

Thousands attended The Church of St Nicholas of Myra, Francis Street at 1pm for Grace's funeral yesterday, with moving tributes being paid by fans, family and famous faces alike.

Grace was best known for his comedy schoolboy character 'Bottler' and his 1996 appearance in the TV series Father Ted as Father Fintan Stack.

Those who are part of the community in The Liberties prepared for his funeral in a loving way, adding 'RIP Bottler' tributes to their storefronts.

His remains were cremated in a private ceremony for family and friends in Newlands Cross Crematorium yesterday, and mourners were asked to donate to the charity Engaging Dementia.

The official 'Brendan Grace' Facebook page commented on the amazing street mural, which was painted by Fink Art.

"A little birdie told us there was a street artist painting a Bottler mural just off Frances St today, so we drove in to see for ourselves.

"Here's Brendan's wife Eileen and Son Brendan Patrick sharing a wonderful moment with artist Fintan after surprising him with a visit."

They added; "So moving. Bottler would LOVE THIS. Thank you, Fintan."
