ONE of the biggest stars to grace our television screens and radio airwaves, Sir Terry Wogan was born just off the Ennis Road. In a career spanning almost 60 years, he assumed the role of something of a national treasure both here and in Britain.
He presented the popular Wake up to Wogan on BBC Radio Two, which at one point with eight million people tuning in on a regular basis, made him the most listened to radio broadcaster in Europe.
He was also known for his work on television, including Children in Need and caustic, but good humoured commentary for man years on the Eurovision.
A proud Limerick man, Sir Terry was awarded the Freedom of the City, our highest civic honour, back in 2007.
He sadly died in January 2016.
