Uncle Gaybo: 1934 -2019

The death has been announced of legendary broadcaster Gay Byrne, the father of Irish broadcasting.

Tributes have been flooding in for the 85-year-old who had been ill for some time.

President Michael D Higgins called Gay Byrne “a man of great charisma who exuded warmth and presence, who was possessed of effortless wit and charm.

“This was combined with an innate gentleness as a person, professionalism and humour.”

Gay has been the voice of Ireland for nearly five decades on both radio and TV.

The world’s longest-running TV show and Byrne’s most notable achievement, The Late Late Show, first aired in 1962 and Gay remained in the hot seat until 1999. It shaped Ireland by challenging society, politics, and breaking new ground.

The consummate professional, his RTÉ Radio 1 show “The Gay Byrne Show” was always Ireland’s most popular, while his unique presenting style brought warmth and charm to the Rose of Tralee and the Housewife of the Year.

His dulcet tones were the soundtrack to many a childhood and entire lifetimes in this country.

He is survived by his wife Kathleen, two daughters Crona and Suzy and five grandchildren.
