Daniel O'Herlihy

I was sad to hear of the death of that fine actor Dan O’Herlihy. In a long career he was active in Theatre, Television and Films, achieving an Oscar nomination for best actor in the 1952, losing out to Marlon Brando. My own favourite was his performance in Halloween 3: season of the witches although he might be better known for his performances in Robocop.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
