Suzy Byrne : My Dad, Gay Byrne

Topics covered : Gay Byrne, nostalgia and memories, the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s in Ireland, love and grief.


In the penultimate episode of the year, I speak to Suzy Byrne about her Dad, legendary broadcaster, Gay Byrne.

Suzy is married to Ronan and they have three children Cia, Sadhbh and Saoirse.

Being the daughter of one of our best-known broadcasters, this conversation gives us an insight into the man Gay Byrne was at home, from one of the people who knew him best.

She also talks about a book she has complied called

‘Dear Gay- letters to the Gay Byrne show, a handwritten history of Ireland’.

Available in all good bookshops.
