Bill O’Herlihy signed off last night from RTÉ Sport.

He’ll leave it there so, live.

Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht Jimmy Deenihan said Mr O’Herlihy would prove to be an “excellent chairman” of the board and has been tasked with increasing indigenous audiences for Irish film.

Mr O’Herlihy had been one of former Fine Gael Taoiseach Garret FitzGerald’s media “handlers” in the 1980s, but Mr Deenihan stressed that he had no involvement in politics in recent decades.

“He was never an adviser in my time for the last 30 years. I’ve never seen Bill at any Fine Gael function. I have never met Bill in any other context other than sport and television.”

We’ll leave it there, so.
