“In the week of the Eurovision Song Contest I remember working with him, when he produced the Eurovision from Millstreet in 1993, which was an extraordinary feat.”It was the largest ever outside broadcast ever attempted by RTÉ, coming from a town with a population of just 1500. It was an amazing experience with Niamh Kavanagh winning on the very last vote with In Your Eyes.
“Kevin will be missed by all who knew or worked with him at RTÉ
Mr Horan added: “We’d like to extend our sympathies to his wife Mary and daughter Sophie and all his friends and colleagues here in RTÉ. May he rest in peace.” [RTÉ]

I like the I know everyone thinks their dad was the coolest tweet so I'm doing one:
I know everyone thinks their dad was the coolest but my dad was a diehard #Eurovision fan and he worked on the show during Ireland's historical winning spree (4 wins in 5 years '92 to '96 💪)
