    Gay Byrne, RIP
    Nulla semper amicus, servivit mihi, in iniuriam mihi neminem quem non persolvi

    Comment


      I remember watching the episode where a woman (A Yank maybe?) was showing how to put a condom on!

      RIP Gay, an absolute legend of Irish broadcasting.

          Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

            Tommy G eventually sorted out Flynn, Gay teed it up but it cost a lot of money to find out the truth via Mahon, Flynn and his missus still have the 50k farm/forestry

                    I was giving a presentation, a few years ago in the North Mon Gaelcoláiste and I arrived too early.

                    I loitered in the corridor, looking at the various photos therein.

                    Beside the Secretary's Office, was an envelope and a letter in a glass frame.

                    The stamp was postmarked 8:15 at the GPO in Cork on the 20th of March 1920.

                    It was from the Lord Mayor, Tomás McCurtain, asking the recipient, Seán Tóibín (as Gaeilge) to call into his office that evening, he might have a bit of work for him.

                    That night, McCurtain was shot dead at his house in Blackpool.

                    The letter was donated to the school by Seán Tóibín's son, Niall.

                    RIP.

                          Clive James had been diagnosed as terminal years & years ago, but kept on keeping on. I enjoyed his occasional column in the Guardian, which he wittily titled "Reports of my death". I didn't know Jonathan Miller had Alzheimer's disease, and that is cruelly ironic for someone of such great intellect who was a real renaissance man - doctor, comedian, author, director of theatre & opera, documentary maker.
                          Tis but a scratch.

                            used to love his tv show back in the day showing clips from around the world pre internet days .
                            lovely poem he wrote back in 2014 below about mortality etc after he was diagnosed with leukemia.

                            Your death, near now, is of an easy sort.
                            So slow a fading out brings no real pain.
                            Breath growing short
                            Is just uncomfortable. You feel the drain
                            Of energy, but thought and sight remain:

                            Enhanced, in fact. When did you ever see
                            So much sweet beauty as when fine rain falls
                            On that small tree
                            And saturates your brick back garden walls,
                            So many Amber Rooms and mirror halls?

                            Ever more lavish as the dusk descends
                            This glistening illuminates the air.
                            It never ends.
                            Whenever the rain comes it will be there,
                            Beyond my time, but now I take my share.

                            My daughter’s choice, the maple tree is new.
                            Come autumn and its leaves will turn to flame.
                            What I must do
                            Is live to see that.That will end the game
                            For me, though life continues all the same:

                            Filling the double doors to bathe my eyes,
                            A final flood of colors will live on
                            As my mind dies,
                            Burned by my vision of a world that shone
                            So brightly at the last, and then was gone.
