Legendary sports commentator and journalist Jimmy Magee has passed away aged 82.
For many years he was associated with the Jimmy Magee Allstars who traditionally played the All-Ireland champions in the days after a final and at one stage they played a Meath selection in Rathkenny in the late 1980s - does anyone have memories of the game?
Jimmy was known as the memory man, he joined RTÉ in 1956 and in his time as a broadcaster, commentated on 10 Olympic Games and 11 World Cups.
He also commented on Katie Taylor’s historic gold medal victory at the London 2012 Olympic games for RTÉ.
At the same London Olympics in London, the International Olympic Committee acknowledged Magee's outstanding contribution to sport and presented him with a replica of the Olympic torch.
He also co-hosted the quiz show ‘Know Your Sport’ on RTÉ Television alongside George Hamilton from 1987 to 1998.
