The presenter was rushed to hospital in June after suffering a heart attack following a day out playing golf.

Last month he revealed the seriousness of the heart scare in an exclusive interview with the Irish Independent.

Despite the incident he remains upbeat and positive about the future.

"There's no point worrying for the rest of your life," he said.

"I had a shaky call, obviously, but the recent tragedies in Berkeley and Tunisia put it all into perspective."

He was back in the RTÉ hot seat to oversee all the action from the Ulster and Connacht football finals.
