'I bet he's smiling in heaven' - Irish fans pay poignant to Bill O'Herlihy after Germany win
Bill O'Herlihy was trending on Twitter last night as football fans took the chance to remember the missed broadcaster following one of our greatest ever wins.
O'Herlihy, who retired as the anchor of RTE's football panel after the 2014 World Cup, died in his sleep back in May plunging sports fans across the country into morning.
We enjoyed some of our greatest ever sporting moments in the company of the Corkman and people took to social media to pay tribute to him last night.
