IT TAKES the most skilled of chatshow hosts to calmly navigate an interview where their guest starts to impersonate a barnyard animal while climbing on the couch and claiming to be Jedward's father. Brendan O'Connor is one such broadcaster who has charted some of the most controversial, diverse and liveliest of TV territories. Every Saturday night, the Cork man brings us top-class musicians and comedians and then there are his interviews.
His recent interview with Kerry teenager Donal Walsh, about his fight with cancer, captured the nation and reached as far as New Zealand – when All Black Dan Carter heard of his story and made contact with the inspirational Walsh.
