Marian Finucane has been described as a "pioneer in women's broadcasting."
Tributes are being paid to the RTE presenter who died suddenly yesterday at the age of 69.
She joined the national broadcaster in 1974, and hosted shows including Women Today, Liveline, and The Marian Finucane Show.
The President Michael D Higgins says she was one of the very early exemplars to those who sought a proper representation of women in broadcasting.
While, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has described her as "a true broadcasting legend who reshaped current affairs radio."
Culture Minister Josepha Madigan has described Marian Finucane as a 'role model' for the women of Ireland.
