In the heartbreaking clip, Eamonn said of his touchy and incredibly generous father: “He’s been gone for 31 years now, but I still miss him every day.

“I can’t remember my late father without thinking about how he always wanted to deliver… even when I had a successful career. I think like all of us, he just liked that we needed them.

Describing vivid memories of his father, while fighting back tears, Eamonn said: “All he did was give us a big hug, or whatever …

“All he did was say things like, ‘Do you need the money? I was at Ulster Television and I was making £ 12,000 a year. He wasn’t making £ 12,000 a year or anything like that.

“One day my mom said, ‘Let him give you some money.’ I did. I was like ‘yeah daddy’ and he was giving me twenty pounds.

Eamonn also admitted that the hardest part of losing his father was so suddenly unable to say goodbye to him.

Earlier this year, Eamonn tweeted about his father’s passing, saying: “My father’s death was a particularly horrific experience for my mother, my younger brother and his friend who were all in the car.”

Eamonn is one of five brothers – Conor, Brian, Leonard and Colm – whom he previously described as his “best friends”.

Eamonn revealed he had already suffered a panic attack live on air during the breakfast TV presentation, which he struggled to cover and even had to be hospitalized twice. .

He explained, “I had a number of panic attacks, thank goodness that was about 27 years ago.

“Like you, I thought I was going to die, my coping strategy was to realize that I was not going to die, but I would never have associated it with a mental problem.”

Eamonn realized in retrospect that he may have suffered them because of his father’s untimely death.

He continued, “I think looking back on it was the result of my father suddenly dying and not being able to say goodbye to him. I associated being away from home with bad things.
