Dermot O Leary’s Tribute To Terry Wogan Is Truly Moving

An Irish blessing.

Tributes to broadcasting legend Terry Wogan have been pouring in this morning but this one from Dermot O’Leary touches a chord.

Terry was born in Limerick, grew up in Dublin and worked for RTÉ before moving to London to pursue a career with BBC.

With that in mind, Dermot saw fit to dedicate the below Irish blessing to Terry.

Alongside the below photo of Terry, Dermot wrote:

“Thank you Terry. For everything.
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand”.
