Here is how you can pay tribute to much-loved broadcaster Terry Wogan

He passed away at the age of 77 on Sunday.

BOOKS OF CONDOLENCE have opened for Terry Wogan in his home county of Limerick.

The public will be able to pay tribute to the late broadcaster from 10am this morning when the books open at council buildings in the city at Dooradoyle and in Merchants Quay.

The book at Merchants Quay will be signed later this morning by mayor of Limerick, Councillor Liam Galvin.

“These books of condolence afford Limerick people at home and abroad the opportunity to convey their sympathies to the family of the late Terry Wogan, a true son of Limerick and a broadcasting institution whose passing will be mourned by millions,” he said.

Despite the fact that he was based in the UK throughout much of his career, Sir Terry often returned home to Limerick and never missed an opportunity on radio or TV to speak about his Limerick roots.

Wogan was honoured with the title of Freeman of Limerick in 2007.

For years he was one of Britain’s most high-profile broadcasters, known for his association with the Eurovision Song Contest and Children in Need, as well as his long running BBC Radio 2 breakfast show and television programme Wogan.  

He died on Sunday after a short battle with cancer, his family said.  

An online book of condolence will open later today on the Limerick City and County Council website.
