RTE 2fm have announced the departure of Hector O hEochagain.

"RTE 2fm would like to take this opportunity to thank Hector for the enormous effort it takes to broadcast a breakfast show and for the entertainment he gave to his 'soldiers of the dawn'."
RTE said Hector's will be back for a second instalment of his series ‘Hector Goes’.
