R.I.P Gay Byrne

My main memories of him were presenting the Toy Show when I was a kid and when he finished up in 1999.

RIP Gaybo. He was very much part of the fabric of RTE, and indeed of Ireland.

Ah I am genuinely gutted to read that. He was a great broadcaster and ahead of his time in terms of the content of his shows. He was a great supporter of the underdog and those society tended to shun. Rest in peace.

Greatest Irish broadcaster (alongside Terry Wogan). Head and shoulders above anyone else at RTE.
