He did play the Grandfather.

Thanks Donna, our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

He was a wonderful actor and such a sweetheart. I first saw him in the delightful Waking Ned Devine and experienced a thrill of recognition every time I saw him after that, no matter what the role. He was perfect as grandpa Joe.

There are many obits out there. Here's an appreciation from The Irish Times and another remembrance with a lovely video clip of his receiving a lifetime achievement award at the Iftas, including several clips from Johnny.

IN TODAY’S Irish Times there’s a lovely piece by Donald Clarke about David Kelly, a man whose acting ability was only matched by his boundless charm. There’s a short selection of links with it for some of his work, from his turn as O’Reilly the builder in Fawlty Towers to his role in Samuel Beckett’s Rough for Theatre I. Well worth a watch, though, is his acceptance speech, and the video tributes from the likes of Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and many others, when Kelly picked up a lifetime achievement award at the Iftas. He found the whole thing extraordinary, and wondered why someone was giving him an award for being allowed to do what he always dreamed of doing. We will never see his like again.
