Rory Cowan has set the record straight about his departure from Mrs Brown’s Boys, admitting that he simply didn’t enjoy the touring aspect any more.
Yesterday morning the Dubliner confirmed that he had quit the show after working with the team for 26 years, but said it wasn’t a choice he made lightly.
Rory admitted that he had been unhappy for two years before deciding to hand in his notice, revealing he didn’t enjoy life on the road any more.
“It was getting to the stage where I had been touring so much,” he told The Herald.
“We were covering the same routes and playing the same venues and it just got a bit dull and repetitive.
“Life on the road can be boring and I would be staying in apartments I didn’t really like. And the time off stage was dragging.
“If I stayed doing the tours, I would know what my life was going to be like until 2022. It would have been the same venues and places.
“But I can’t fault Brendan, and there was no falling out – and it definitely wasn’t about money.
“Brendan has been so generous to me. In fact, his generosity has enabled me to leave the show.”
Brendan spoke out about his exit from the show last night, telling fans he wished it was a joke.
