On Monday night RTE aired Luke Kelly: Prince Of The City and people were full of praise for the documentary.
It's been 32 years since we lost Luke Kelly, one of the most iconic figures in Irish music.
And on Monday night, RTE honoured the folk singer, writer and performer with a documentary that examined his life and legacy, exploring the many ways his inspiration continues to resonate today.
It was emotional viewing for many people but also one of celebration as viewers took to Twitter to praise RTE for the show and to honour the legendary Dubliners musician with touching words of admiration and respect.
He was just 43-years-old when he died in 1984 but as the documentary showed, we were very lucky to have him at all - Irish culture and arts will be forever enriched by his incredible talent.
If you missed out, you still have a chance to catch it on RTE Player.
A great reminder that being authentic is all we need to do.#LukeKelly put his heart & soul into his voice, how powerful that realness was.— Síle Seoige (@SileSeoige) July 4, 2016
