RTÉ's tribute to Bill O'Herlihy is something special

We've already shared some of our favourite moments from Bill O'Herlihy's career, but on the man's last night yesterday evening, RTÉ paid their own tribute.

With access to the entire library of video in the archives, it's really something special, covering a 49-year career, 10 Olympics, and 10 World Cups.

If you missed it during the live broadcast last night, here's the extended cut from RTÉ themselves.

Featuring a whole host of famous faces from politics to broadcasting to, of course, sport, it's really lovely. His team at RTÉ have obviously been planning this for a while, collecting little snippets out in the field.

Fair play to all involved. And enjoy the time off, Bill.
