Byrne's death was announced Monday, aged 85 after a long illness and the country was quick to pay tribute to its national treasure who changed the face of broadcasting in Ireland over the course of many years. 

His life and career were celebrated in the special episode of the show which he led from 1962 until 1999; 37 years in which he courted controversy, shared heartbreak with the nation and gave Ireland some of its most memorable TV moments.
