Open thread: Share your favourite memories of the late Gay Byrne
Alongside the Late Late, the veteran broadcaster also presented the weekday Gay Byrne Show on RTÉ radio for almost three decades.

LEGENDARY BROADCASTER GAY Byrne has died, aged 85.

He was one of the best-known and most popular RTÉ presenters, most notably on The Late Late Show.

As the news of broadcaster’s death broke this afternoon, RTÉ One interrupted its daytime schedule to pay tribute to their former colleague.

And people who grew up listening to and watching him have been reminiscing about their favourite Gay Byrne moments.

There are so many great ones to choose from:
