Here are Aengus Mac Grianna’s best bloopers in honour of his retirement from RTÉ

He's a national treasure after giving us some serious laughs during his 30 years of stellar newscasting.

Aengus Mac Grianna has given us 30 years of of brilliant news reading and while we admire him for that, we’re even bigger fans of his blooper reel.

We’re all bound to occasionally slip up at work but most of us have the luxury of not working on live television, Aengus is not one of us.

From makeup application to wardrobe adjustments he has accidentally brought the behind the scenes stuff on screen several times over the years.

“Last day newscasting @rtenews after 30 years! I’ve had a blast. Get all yizer parades on de 6–1 tonight! Go raibh maith agaibh agus beannachtai na feile Padraig! Gra mor Aengus x x”

His parting broadcast will be a special one as he celebrates St Patrick’s Day with all of us on RTÉ’s Six-One News tonight.

We’ve loved some of the real life Anchorman moments he’s given us getting carried away reading the teleprompter.

Accolades he has been awarded include Jimmy Kimmel’s prestigous Excellence in Reporting award AND landing in an eBay ad for this one!

Here’s a few more we’re hoping RTÉ will include in his farewell montage after his last broadcast this evening.

Congratulation on your career Aengus and give us one more blooper for the road pretty please!
