O’Carroll has experienced one of his most successful years yet, with the summer opening of Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie which was received well at the box office.

The comedian reckoned Dublin has changed a lot in the last number of years in positive ways.

“Dublin has changed an awful lot over the last couple of years and you can see it this morning,” he told

“This is my fifteenth year to do this live from Grafton Street. I’ve been through the recession and there’s a pep in the step of Dublin right now.”

The performer was joined by his wife Jennifer Gibney who featured in ITV’s Strictly Come Dancing earlier this year.

Laughing with his chum Joe Duffy the pair joked that they were “working for peace in the Northside.”
