Burke plays Damien Halpin in the RTÉ One soap, and featured as part of a plot that saw him become a victim of domestic abuse from wife Suzanne (Sarah Flood).
Coronation Street will soon start a new storyline that features a similar scenario, with mechanic Tyrone Dobbs (Alan Halsall) getting attacked by fiancée Kirsty Soames (Natalie Gumede).
Burke explained that he is happy Fair City was able to tackle the issue before the ITV1 soap.
"Coronation Street are definitely watching Fair City, that's for sure," he told Herald. "I am really glad they are doing it but it's nice that we did it first."
Comparing the two soaps, he said: "This has happened before. A few years ago we did a story about all the local guys starting a soccer team and like two months later characters in Corrie were doing the same. So it's nice for RTE to see that."
He added that he predicts the storyline on Coronation Street will provide a big talking point among fans in the same way it did with Fair City.
"When we did it on Fair City it was a national thing, it was huge at the time, it really got people talking. Whether they liked it or loathed it, it got people talking and it definitely divided the public.
"It's probably going to be the same with Coronation Street, but the important thing is that they do it right. I did so much homework on what really goes on.
"I went to groups and met men who had been through it themselves, I heard some really horrific stories. I hope the actors in Coronation Street give it the same time and energy we did."
He also revealed that men often praise him for his work on the storyline, saying that it helped them get through similar situations.
"It's crazy the amount of guys that still come up to me and thank me for that story," he said.
"People have told me that the situation was really true to life and it helped them get through it. But there are still some people out there who just don't want to believe it."
BBC One's daytime soap Doctors has also recently explored the issue of domestic violence against men.
