A tribute show to the great man will be shown on Monday night, and RTE have released two fantastic clips of Billo in action at Italia '90 and Euro '88 to whet your appetite.

Cloch le Carn airs at 7.30pm on Monday on RTÉ One, a tribute to the legendary broadcaster who sadly passed away last year.

It is sure to be an emotional show considering how beloved he was by colleagues and viewers as he presented a host of important sporting ocassions over the decades for RTE.

However, it is with the Irish soccer team's exploits he is most closely associated and to prepare for the show on Monday, RTE have posted two classic moments from his career online.

First up is the half-time of Ireland v England at Euro '88, featuring a gem of a line from Johny Giles.

And that is followed by his legendary intro before Ireland again played England at Italia '90.
