The Eagle has flown

After many years of service our endearing weather man John Eagleton is retiring this week.

Personally I will miss his soothing voice whereby he has always delivered the good and bad weather in such a professional manner and even if it was a bad forecast nobody panicked

Best of luck John in your retirement.

The day he left the TV forecasts was the day the weather got worse.

May he have a retirement which is bright with sunny spells.

I'll miss John's broadcasts on RTE. He had a unique, very soothing way of presenting the weather... he even managed to make bad weather sound tolerable.

Happy retirement John.

A positive weatherman in the face of months of rain.

"It wont be all bad" "everywhere should get some dry spells" " it wont be wet all the time" Take note Gerry Murphy (we can expect rain or drizzle and unsettled windy weather from now until I retire)
