Forty years ago today, Brian Carthy made his RTÉ debut.
The popular Roscommon native remains as one of the most recognisable voices in Gaelic Games through his work as a correspondent / commentator on RTÉ Radio.

Brian took to Twitter to mark the milestone and thanked his family and the GAA community for all their support down through the years while remembering his late mother Susan.
From all the staff at hoganstand.com, we would like to congratulate Brian on his latest achievement. Thank you for your outstanding contribution to Gaelic Games over the years Brian and here's to many more!
Today is the 40th anniversary of my arrival in @rte. It's a long time since my mother, Susan, (R.I.P.), first heard me commentating around Sliabh Bán. Sincere thanks to my family & everyone within the Gaelic Games community and beyond for your continued support and encouragement.— Brian Carthy (@briancarthyrte) May 25, 2020
