Surprised at you ratti....you bein intelligent and all ....
Watch this and yull see the cnut for wat he was ....
A west brit snob of the highest calibre
https://youtu.be/8kS-4tpsXsU
And the way he treated annie Murphy defending his mates in the catholic church
Self serving egotistical cnut .....he represents everything that was and is wrong wit ireland and the reason it's going down
The shite pipe sold to foreigners and the church selling off billions in assets givin to them by the naive state to build schools and playing fields to supplement the trillions in the Vatican mafia coffers ....
Fuck him and his west brit Italian treasonic infidels ...damn them all to hell

I never met him on a personal level but that's not how he came across in my mind. He drove an average car (Opel Vectra or something) and explained his relatively frugal lifestyle with the wonderful quote "my wants are simple and my needs less". Either way he made a significant contribution to Irish society and cultural development and, indeed, to saving lives on our roads as an activist and in his role as initial Chairman of the RSA.

He drove a banger and had a frugal lifestyle cause his arrogance and greed got the better of him....that's why ...first some bloke fleeced him of his investments then Anglo irish stripped him naked....
People like him is the reason I dont have a telly....
The shite coming out of Joe Duffy today makes me puke.....another dope

I don't think his financial losses were in any way relevant to his lifestyle, Octy. He was never going to be short cash on the hip with his earning power within RTE and beyond. There's a special Late Late Show on RTE One this evening followed by part 2 of the documentary Gaybo. Power city have Saorview approved TV sets starting at €129.95.

Wasn’t it Gay who highlighted unwed mother’s giving birth and passing away as they had to hide their pregnancy.
It’s all that deckers fault we have so many single mothers out there. He highlighted it and made it “acceptable”

Anyways RIP to him, and condolences to his family

In fairness John he touched many peoples lives...in much the same way that Octy nearly touched cloth....cos he got caught up in Gaybos funeral,

200 jobs goin at RTE...i don't think covering the funeral is the best use of licence fees tbh.

Probably the best ratings it'll see for a long time. It's broke because it thinks mediocre (at best) presenters like Joe Duffy, Ryan Tubridy, Ray Darcy, Pat (the plank) Kenny, etc are stars and pays them accordingly.

First mass I've virtually attended in many a year.

Tubbers on 495k per year,self employed contractor..much the same as the rest of the "stars"
Even if he took a 30% cut he'd still be on nearly 350k....200k more than he should be on....average wage for the normals in RTE is 72k!!.....where do i sign?

It's hard to justify a licence fee in this day and age. In years gone by it could be used to promote public service broadcasting and/or censor content to exclude content Govt doesn't consider to be in the public interest but these days anyone can broadcast anything they want on the internet and there's no shortage of what one might consider to be public service content such as news and current affairs coverage and debate.
Title: Re: Gay Byrne RIP
Post by: Shallowhal on November 08, 2019, 03:47:23 PM
It has been said that RTE has bern the mouthpiece for government spin forever although i did read yesterday that presenter Will Leahy from RTE Gold did say that they were using very expensive technology to broadcast and because of the platform they use they're not included in the JNLR figures.

I heard on the wireless that RTE doesn't get paid by Sky for it's content... so why aren't the RTE channels FTA on the Sky platform? It seems they have all the negotiating skills of someone with extremely poor negotiating skills.

RTE was the mouthpiece of the state and Byrne was its Whore .RTE is dead nobody wants to listen to Tubberty cross examining people with pre approved questions .The interned has made journalism defunct .Just look ayt Veradkar agreeing to help the Crown out of Europe not one mention on RTE that no majority on this island exists for an Irish Government to support the Crown .Not one mention that  the Gay abortion supporting Taoiseach only agreed to support Brexit was after it was agreed that Both Abortion and Gay Marage would be introduced in the North .Dumphy and Hook who called cunts, cunts were got rid of .

My old Granny (R.I.P. 1990) was from Tramore in county Waterford, she was widowed young with 5 children to rear.
She loved all her grandchildren including myself and we spent many holidays with her and also with her visiting us in Cork.
She was a lovely woman and would do anything fer her kids and grandkids..... BUT...... Friday night 9.20pm after the News.
It was a different story, this was her time, it was Gaybo and the late late show and everyone had to sit in silence.

To her and I would imagine many like her, Gaybo was her King and God Bless both of them, he kept her happy !

That’s because back then all they had was RTE 1 and Network 2 to watch. Not a lot of choice. gay was in everyone's sitting rooms for 37 years on a Friday night and also on the wireless for a time, it’s all some people knew.
Me, and my generation, never cared for RTE, we got Sky when I was a kid and that brought a whole new world of entertainment,
RTE should just be scrapped or set up as a private company. Let’s see hw long it’ll last. Why do we still have a national broadcaster when we can’t have a government run anything else, ESB, Aer Lingus, An Post, CIE, Bord Gais etc etc
