The Westmeath man passed away earlier today.
Former Midlands 103 commentator Ned Flynn has passed away today following a long illness.
The Castlepollard man is survived by his sister Biddy and brother Tom, sister-in-law Maureen, nephews, nieces, relatives and a large circle of friends.
He gave a lifetime's service to Castletown/Finea/Coole/Whitehall, Castlepollard, and Westmeath and provided hours of GAA commentary on Midlands 103 during his many years working with the station.
Presenter of the Inside Line Will O Callaghan says he will miss Ned's razor sharp wit.

Ned gave a lifetime's service to Castletown/Finea/Coole/Whitehall, Castlepollard, and Westmeath.
But what I'll truly miss is his razor-sharp wit and a man who was good to a young broadcaster. RIP pic.twitter.com/P6aZurFLgb
Midlands 103's Jack Nolan says his former colleague was a wonderful character and he had the pleasure of enjoying his company on many occasions over three decades. He describes Ned as as passionate man and someone who wore his heart on his sleeve.
He passed away surrounded by his loving family and the doctors, matron and staff of Cavan General Hospital.
His funeral mass will take place in St Michael’s Church, Castlepollard on Sunday, at 11.30am, with burial afterwards in Finea Cemetery.
May he rest in peace.
