PARTING SHOT

RTÉ Radio legend Larry Gogan announced today that he is set to leave 2FM after 40 years at the station.

Gogan is well-known for the length of time he’s been on the airwaves, but almost as famous is the ‘Just a Minute Quiz’, one of the highlights of his shows over the years. 

The 60-second quiz is often recalled for the wrong answers that participants have given, and as a tribute to Gogan, RTÉ have put together ten of the best worst answers from down the years, which you can read here.

Comments are closed as legal proceedings are ongoing in one of the stories above.
