'Didn't realise how much I missed Dobbo' - Bryan Dobson's back on TV and people are delighted
There's a lot of love for Bryan Dobson on social media today as he leads RTE One's panel on the referendum result.
'Dobbo', as he's affectionately known, fronted RTE's Six One News opposite Sharon Ní Bheoláin for 21 years before moving to RTE Radio 1's flagship morning show Morning Ireland in January.
But it seems people have missed his friendly face on the tellybox.
Many are expressing their joy at his return, however, brief, and appreciate the veteran broadcaster manning the fort on this historic day as the majority of people in the country have voted Yes to repeal the Eighth Amendment.
Here are some of the reactions to Dobbo's return:

Will I ever feel un-shook again??
This is surreal.
