Time is up for Ireland's Speaking Clock, as the service ceased this morning after almost 50 years.
The 1-1-9-1 number had seen a steady decline in calls in recent years.
The format used was a message at 10 second intervals, which told callers: "At the signal it will be, HH:MM and XX seconds" followed by a beep.
Eir said the very small number it did receive could not justify maintaining the system.
At its peak, the service attracted close to three million calls a year.
