These new clips of Bill O'Herlihy at Italia 90 and Euro 88 are brilliantly nostalgic

We miss you, Billo.

88

HAS IRELAND EVER seen a telly hero quite like Bill O’Herlihy?

The beloved sports broadcaster, remembered for his catchphrases and jumpers as well as his place at the centre of some of Ireland’s greatest soccer moments, passed away last year.

On Monday evening at 7.30 RTÉ’s Cloch le Carn series will look back on Bill’s life, and they’ve released two brilliantly nostalgic vidoes, one as Ireland prepared to face England in their first ever world cup finals match at Italia 90.

The other features half time analysis during that infamous Ireland v England game in Stuttgart at Euro 88.

The jumpers!
