Video: This Irish lad can do one hell of a Brendan O’Connor impression

You’d swear Brendan was in the room with you

This is class.

RTÉ’s Saturday Night Show with Brendan O’Connor received more viewers than The Late Late show with Ryan Tubridy last weekend, so impressionist Shane Cunningham decided to share in Brendan’s delight with this cracking little video.

Speaking to JOE, Shane told us that he has been doing impressions for the past five years, but it’s only in the last three years that he started doing them professionally.

As for Shane’s favourite impression, the 19-year-old Galway man told us it would have to be: “Daniel O’Donnell. It’s just because with him, he’s such mammy pleaser and you can say anything with him.

“However my other favourites would be Louis Walsh, Michael D. Higgins and Brendan O’Connor, as they are amongst my strongest!”

If you liked Shane’s impression of Brendan as much as we did then you should check out his Facebook page here.
