Legendary sports broadcaster Bill O'Herlihy will be laid to rest on Friday.
The Cork native passed away at the age of 76 yesterday.
Funeral Mass will take place on Friday at Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, Foxrock Co Dublin at 11.30am with burial in Shanganagh Cemetery.
The well-known Cork man retired as RTE's main sports presenter last summer - after almost half a century.
He covered 10 World Cups and 10 Olympic Games - he also presented the first Rugby World Cup on RTE television and the very first Sunday Game in 1979.
He had a heart attack in 1984 and needed a major operation in 2007 because of a colon cancer tumour which he recovered from to resume his place as anchor of RTE's soccer coverage.
The much-loved presenter is survived by his wife Hilary and his daughters Jill and Sally.
