One of Ireland's most loved entertainers, Brendan Grace, left €493,396 (£422,440) in his will.

The singer and comedian died on July 11 last at the Galway Clinic surrounded by his loved ones.

He was listed in his will as living at Cullenagh, Ballina, Co Tipperary, although first and foremost he always identified himself as "a Liberties boy" from the heart of his beloved Dublin.

While his death notice listed him as being "late of Ballina/Killaloe, Jupiter, Florida and Echlin Street, Dublin", Irish people considered him one of their own.

His wife Eileen told the Sunday Independent that she feels "disappointed" every morning she wakes up without her husband by her side.
