Sharon Horgan has opened up about the loss of her father at the end of last year.

She took to Instagram to pay a beautiful tribute to John Horgan who sadly passed away four months ago just days after Christmas.

She shared some gorgeous pictures of her father over the years, from award ceremonies to him with baby Sharon.

The Bad Sisters creator wrote: “I haven’t posted for a while. My darling dad died at Christmas and I hadn’t – and still haven’t – learned how to accept condolences properly.

“But I was at the IFTAs at the weekend and it was my first one without him and lots of people talked to me about having met my dad and what a gorgeous man he was. And he really was. Such a dude.

“I was so proud of him and how he could talk to anyone. I remember him bending Brian Gleeson’s ear last IFTAS about how characterfully he ate an egg and onion sandwich in Bad Sisters.

“He was my biggest cheerleader but also the best at levelling it all and reminding you not to get ahead of yourself that none of it matters. He loved nothing more than tickling a grandchild or having a pint in the sun. And he really rocked a hat.”

She went on to say: “I miss him terribly.”

“Sending love to anyone who’s lost someone they love be recently or not so recently. Life is hard but it does go on. So. Back to posting photos, thanking people for dresses and what not and plugging my wares. Think he’d be happy with that.”

Rest in peace, John.
