Southside sap Ivor and de northside layabout Damo bag their own show
Andy is the son of millionaire developer Richard Quirke, and his family are the proud owners of Dr Quirkey’s on O’Connell Street, as well as a similar venture in Phibsboro. And for the record, Andy is from Foxrock, making him a southsider.
Andy also happens to be the brother of Wesley, the other half of former Miss World Rosanna Davison.
The new show will see Quirke take on his personas of northsider Damo and southsider Ivor, two twins separated at birth, in each of the 30 minute episodes.

Damo, on the other hand, is rarely seen without a can of Dutch Gold in his hand, wears an oversized baseball cap, sovereign rings and a Celtic jersey.
