Fair City fans hailed the "heartbreaking" final scene for Karl Shiels, who passed away last month.
The actor died aged 47 and last night his final scene as Robbie Quinn aired on RTÉ.
Departing on a business trip, Robbie turns to on-screen wife Carol (played by Aisling O'Neill) before saying: "Right, cab's outside, you sure you are going to manage without me?"
Fans of the Carrigstown soap hailed the scene referring to it as "poignant", "heartbreaking" and "a lovely ending".
Its still so hard to comprehend that the wonderful and inspiring #karlshiels is gone.Heartbreaking for fans, must be a million times worse for his beloved family and #FairCity family. Robbie and Carol were the BEST duo/ couple and thank you to Karl and @aislingchris_o for that ❤— Emma Carroll💙💛🇺🇦 (@McsEmma) August 7, 2019
