What a man.

We recently brought you the news that RTÉ will be airing a very special tribute to the legendary Bill O'Herlihy, a wonderful man who sadly passed away in May 2015.

Cloch Le Carn will air on RTÉ One on Monday at 7.30pm, and if the clip below is anything to go by, it'll most definitely be worth watching.

Have your goosebumps at the ready as Billo introduces a day of historic importance for Ireland; the day the Boys In Green lined up against England for their first ever match in the World Cup Finals.

From pride and emotion, to joy and drama, Bill has it covered.

"We're going to give it a lash! Here we go, lads! Here we go!"

Stirring stuff...
