Stop and say hello to Brendan

The family of the late and much-loved Irish comedian, Brendan Grace, has, together with Shannon Group, honored one of his last wishes by having his photo installed in the Shannon Airport “Wall of Fame.”


Grace’s wife Eileen, daughter Amanda, and grandson James are pictured at the unveiling of the photo in the airport gallery. The photo joins over 80 photos of some of the world’s most famous personalities from stage and screen, as well as politicians, kings and queens from around the world who visited the airport over the last eight decades. The “Wall of Fame,” which includes every U.S. president since JFK, was installed in 2015 in the airport departures lounge.


“Brendan loved Shannon Airport. He travelled through here for five decades over and back to the U.S., in particular, but also the UK and Europe. He just loved the convenience and warmth of it. It was, in fact, one of the reasons that got us to come and live in Killaloe,” said Eileen. Photo by Arthur Ellis.
