End of an era, the legendary Gilsey retires from RTE


While the final of the European Championship was a let-down, RTE’s tribute to John Giles, on his retirement from his pundit role at RTE, was a fitting send off for a man that has been a fixture of many a sitting room over the last 30 years.

Watching the montage last night, it struck me that it is not just a reflection of his moments but it rekindles memories of years gone by that we have all shared, another time of your life that is locked in the past.

The arrow of time only moves one way, and in the end all we are left with is our own internal montage of our stand out moments, filled with the people we shared them with. Best make it a good one!
