Twitter users have hailed legendary Meath football manager Sean Boylan as a 'king' following his appearance on the hugely popular Tommy Tiernan Show.
The Dunboyne man stopped by the RTÉ studio to catch up with his fellow county man Tommy Tiernan last night.
Boylan captured the imagination of viewers with his discussions about the power of the Hill of Tara, the ancient seat of the High Kings of Ireland, and where he regularly took his Meath teams to train during his long reign in charge of the Royals.
Watch back Sean's full interview on the RTÉ Player, here.

That chat with Sean Boylan.
Anybody who believes the must-see Royal interview of the weekend will be between Oprah and Meghan hasn't been watching this audience with the high king of Meath.

Feared & revered players.
O Rourke, O Connell, Flynn,
Giles, Geraghty, McDermott.
Even a guy called Hank Trainor (Surely a pseudonym).
Must take that herb
from Skellig Michael.
Better than most of the herbs
that land on our coast. #tommytiernanshow
