One of Ireland’s most well-known directors, we were joined by Declan Lowney to talk all things Father Ted, Grafting, Breaking into the industry as a young man and raising money for his First short and many years later breaking into the Golden age of Tv in LA as an up and coming 60 year old. Declan has been in charge of numerous commercials in Ireland and the UK. He is an Emmy and BAFTA winning director with a long list of credits and memorable shows including Father Ted, Moone Boy, Little Britain and Alan Partridge on Tv and the Feature Alpha Papa. His IMDb credits are incredibly impressive and We inevitably spoke about the wonderful and omnipresent Father Ted.
Declan’s passion is comedy and he has worked with the cream of British and Irish comedy talent, including Steve Coogan, Eddie Izzard, Paul Whitehouse, Johnny Vegas, Matt Lucas and David Walliams and soooo many more. A wonderful guy and a great conversation.
