Paul Howard's Tribute To The Late 98fm Broadcaster Johnny Lyons Is Just Perfect

RIP Johnny – the voice of sport in Dublin


Tributes have been pouring in for Johnny Lyons, the 98fm sports broadcaster who was found dead at his home yesterday.

A cracking character both on and off the air, it's quite easy to tell that he wasn't just a much-loved figure within the sports journalism field – he was its backbone, and the voice of Dublin sports.

Nobody summed up his mad, unpredictable and utterly brilliant personality quite like Paul Howard, however. The Ross O'Carroll-Kelly writer, who is one of Ireland's top sports journalists, fired out a short series of tweets in the early hours of the morning about a guy who will be sorely missed by colleagues and listeners alike.

RIP Johnny.
