I was always a big fan of George.
Some of my favourite Irish sporting memories feature George's voice as the soundtrack.
But would have to admit time has dimmed his commentating skills.
I hope his health is Ok. The number of mistakes he made this tournament were quite surprising.
I'd have to say he's not helped by the quality and demeanor of his co-commentators.
Whelan must be the most negative and downbeat man to ever hold a microphone at a sporting event. He whinges his way through most games....anyone would think its a penance for him just to attend some of the biggest footballing occasions in the world!
Houghton - although usually factually correct - is just as surly and has a really annoying habit of shouting almost aggressively if a defender makes a mistake
