RTÉ 2FM's Bernard O'Shea has released a tribute song to the legendary Larry Gogan - have a listen to the track here.

The Breakfast Republic star wrote the song in honour of the tradition of Larry playing the first Christmas song on 2FM every year since the station began almost 40 years ago.

Larry will be joining Breakfast Republic in studio on Friday November 30 to play the first Christmas song of 2018 on air. 

Bernard said of the song: "Larry the legend, has been doing this for 40 years on 2FM and I expected him to cry when he heard my song for him at first. But he didn't, so that was disappointing - but he really loved it.

"I felt he should be honoured for his tradition and was delighted he liked the song and video so much - could it be a Christmas number 1?"

Listen to Breakfast Republic on 2FM on Friday, November 30 from 6-10am to hear Larry Gogan play the first Christmas song of 2018.
