Numerous tributes have been paid to the late Bill O'Herlihy today, including by an emotional Eamon Dunphy, but one of the most poignant was undoubtedly by Des Cahill.
The Sunday Game presenter was a colleague of Billo's at RTÉ for many years, having first joined the national broadcaster in 1984.
Speaking on the RTÉ News at One, Cahill said:
Bill O'Herlihy has a unique thing that will always be there for his children and grandchildren. Bill O'Herlihy led our greatest days.
They might not have been the most important days but [they were] our greatest days. The days of Olympics medals, World Cups. They all seem to be sunny days. The whole country would stop and join together, and they would hope together, be scared together, share excitement together and disappointment.
And sometimes we had that golden unforgettable joy of victory that we all shared together. Bill O'Herlihy led the whole country in that. Bill led us on those days that we will always remember. Always.
