The Irish legend, who became famous for his trademark catchphrases "okey dokey" and "we'll leave it there so", was a hugely popular broadcaster on RTÉ's football coverage and a massively important part of the fabric of any Irish sporting fan's life.
A superb journalist, an incredible interviewer, and an absolute gentleman; he will be sorely missed.
Our thoughts are with his family, friends and fans at this time.
Thanks for the memories, Bill.
In the words of the great man, "we'll leave it there so."
