Dublin: 3 °C Tuesday 25 February, 2020

So many people have been sharing their memories of Bill O'Herlihy during the Euros

The first tournament without Billo.


IT’S BEEN OVER a year since the sad passing of RTÉ legend Bill O’Herlihy – and with the Euros on the telly every day, he’s being missed more than ever.

This is the first major tournament where he hasn’t marshalled the RTÉ panel with his inimitable grace and wit.

Him not being there just feels strange

And people have been paying tribute to him in the best way – like this flag flying high

Especially on days when Ireland play, his presence is felt

His inspiration is everywhere

People are loving the tournament, but still thinking of Billo

It’s just not the same

Dublin pub The Back Page has created a special mural for the tournament

Some tribute.

And you can see the good will for him popping up all over the place

Whether it’s during matches

Or looking up nostalgic clips of him

Everyone agrees

This summer just won’t be the same without him

Okey doke, we’ll leave it there so <3

It's not the same without Bill #euro2016 #OkeyDoke
