8 times Des Cahill proved he was a goddamn national treasure

Love you, Des.

EVERY MORNING, HUNDREDS of thousands of people wake up to hear Des Cahill deliver the sports news on Morning Ireland.

With his cheery delivery, propensity for messing and in-depth sporting knowledge, the man has established himself as a national treasure.

Just try not to smile at this photo of him giving Ladies’ Day participants a run for their money.

Remember the time he and Cyril Farrell hailed a lift on the side of the road?

Or the time he took credit for the success of Ian Dempsey and Pat Kenny?


Let’s never forget the time he had to inform Pat Kenny of the true meaning of this lewd text from a listener…

Is it true that Gavin Henson goes into church after every match?

Or when he taunted Ray D’Arcy after his big move to RTÉ Radio 1.

Picture the scene: Des Cahill giving Ray D’Arcy a swirly in the loo.

Or the time he took the piss out of photobombing this live sports broadcast.

Who can forget him doing his best to become our Ed Balls on Dancing with the Stars every week?

An iconic few weeks in Irish television history.

Sure, he just loves the craic, doesn’t he?

Love you, Des.
