Chapter 74: Adam Burke


Adam Burke is one Ireland's finest comedians. A native of Bray (Bré) Co. Wicklow he launched The Hardy Har comedy club 8 years ago and it has become a favourite amongst comedy fans and comedians.

He has played some of the best venues around the country and featured in comedy festivals that would make any joke writer blush, including launching the incredible Bray Comedy Festival which will run again in February 2017 for the third year running. 

Ontop of all this Adam has been known to dawn some spandex and boots between the ropes as professional wrestler. He has been in the squared circle with legends like Dan Severen, current WWE Smackdown Women's champion Becky Lynch and of course, fellow Bray man and friend of the show Finn Bálor. 

Be sure to check Adam's solo show "Adam Burke is Alive" on December 8th in the Hardy Har Comedy Club, Harbour Bar, Bray.

Chapter 72: League of Ireland legend, Pat “Pajo” Flynn


Way back in chapter 9 we spoke to Borough legend Patrick "Pajo" Flynn. Over a year later and Pajo has called time on a football career that seen him play alongside some legends of the game in England before returning home to become a fan favourite (in most cases) with clubs across the country. 

Having laced up the boots for the last time as a pro, Pajo penned a heartfelt thank you letter to fans, friends, family and clubs from down the years which went viral and was shared thousands of times. A two time League of Ireland winner, a Setanta Cup winner and a Division 1 winner, Pajo will always be rememberd as a no nonsense player who gave everything he had. It was a pleasure to welcome him to Fitzpatrick Castle Hotel and congratulate him on wonderful career.
