Published Wednesday, 05 January 2011
A Strabane man, famed for his fast talking, has died at the age of 90.
George Cunningham's interview with UTV reporter Charles Witherspoon became the stuff of legends after he spoke at a mile-a-minute when asked for his opinion on the town's high unemployment.
Witherspoon could barely get a question in as 'the fast talker' told him exactly what he thought of the lack of jobs in the area.
The clip has been shown numerous times all over the world including the TV blooper show, It'll Be Alright on the Night.
Mr Cunningham, of Mourne Place, Strabane, died peacefully at Woodmount Nursing Home on Tuesday.
