"If it makes people laugh, how bad." Davy Fitzgerald on being taken off by Conor's Sketches
"I just don’t want to see it."
Chances are you've come across some of the brilliant sketches from Conor Moore on JOE, where he takes off everyone from Ger Loughnane to Matthew McConaughey.
But without doubt, one of his most famous characters is Davy Fitzgerald.
Former Clare ‘keeper, Davy Fitz, was holding back the tears when he came face to face with Ger Loughnane on The GAA Hour Live in Ennis.

As luck would have it, Davy Fitz was the guest on this week's Ireland Unfiltered with Dion Fanning, and of course, his star turns in Conor's sketches came up in the conversation.
Dion: And did you see the sketches that Conor Moore did with you and Ger (Loughnane)? You’re now entwined in the public consciousness forever together.
Davy: Yeah listen, if it makes people laugh, how bad. I just don’t want to see it. But if people get a laugh out of it and they’re happy, then how bad.
Dion: You didn’t see them?
Davy: No, I try and avoid all that stuff I told you if I can, alright?
Dion: But that’s good fun though.
Davy: It happened me one time, we were doing this talk I can’t remember where it was and this lad came up taking me off beside me and you’ve to sit there for 10 or 15 minutes, am I really like that, oh God.
