Today is Larry Gogan's last day on 2FM after 40 years of presenting
The legendary presenter began hosting his first show back in 1979.
After 40 years of presenting on RTÉ 2FM, Larry Gogan has worked his final shift for the station.
The much-loved presenter is moving to RTÉ's digital station Gold, at 80 years of age.
Gogan hosted the legendary Just A Minute Quiz, and is one of the country's best known radio personalities, having been inducted into the IMRO radio awards Hall of Fame.
2FM have even gone as far as to change the name of their official Twitter account to "Larry Gogan FM", for the day that's in it.
Tributes have been pouring in for the broadcasting legend throughout the day on 2FM, and loads of people from the world of radio have also taken to Twitter to pay tribute to Gogan on his last day in the 2FM office:

Such a simple thing - but the fact that Larry Gogan had gone to specifically ask someone what my name was, so he could thank me personally and welcome the new guy to the station meant an awful lot to a super nervous, totally green new kid - Larry made me feel totally welcome.

You know you’re growing up when your fleeting childhood notion of appearing on Larry Gogan’s ‘Just A Minute Quiz’ will never be fulfilled… Long may he remain behind a mic 🎙 @RTE2fm
