The life and work of the late, great RTÉ broadcaster Colm Murray will be celebrated in Cloch Le Carn on RTÉ One on St Patrick's Day at 7:30pm.

Among those paying tribute to the journalist, who passed away in July 2013 following a battle with motor neurone disease, are colleagues and friends, including broadcasters Seán O'Rourke, Robbie Irwin, Evanne Ní Chuilinn, Breandán O'Rourke and leading horse trainer and friend Willie Mullins.

The makers of the show say: "The programme brings us a treasure of classic Colm Murray reports peppered with the colour, excitement, madness and high emotions of Italia 90, one of his career highlights. We re-live those unforgettable scenes from the Stadio Olimpico after Schillaci truly burst the Irish dream."
