Sad Passing Of Bosco’s Pal

For thousands of people in Ireland who grew up without the plethora of live and on demand TV channels, RTE puppet star Bosco brings back memories of their schooldays.

Sadly news has emerged of the passing of one of the stars of the kids tv show who also made a name for himself in several other productions.

Tainaiste Micheál Martin also paid tribute to his fellow Cork native.

‘Very sorry to hear of the passing of Frank Twomey. A proud Cork man, Frank brought joy to many across generations with his work on Bosco, Bull Island, Nighthawk & on stage. Renowned for his sharp wit & humour, he was a versatile & brilliant performer’

Here is Frank when he first made an appearance on our screens. Condolences to his family. RIP Frank🙏.
