#Dunphy had some great / hilarious moments in the distant past but thankfully he's packed it in. Had a shocking tournament and is out of touch with the game and its players and has been for years #eamondunphy #rtesport— Enda O'Connor (@Endacisive) July 25, 2018

Bit conflicted on Dunphy leaving. Yesterday's man no doubt but the role of Eamon Dunphy was never really to be a fountain of knowledge. His role was always to just be Eamon Dunphy.— ray (@vinfox) July 25, 2018
Wow Eamon Dunphy leaves RTE quietly – there'll be no final day tributes like Bill and John received. Whatever about the conciseness of the analysis, Eamo has given us fantastic pageantry over the years— Dean Van Nguyen (@deanvannguyen) July 25, 2018
