Gay & Kathleen go for the Byrne in Kilkenny
He beat all the ratings records during his long and illustrious broadcasting career. And all of Ireland are backing Gay Byrne to beat cancer with the same unstoppable will and characteristic determination.

They enjoyed lunch on Easter Sunday in the fabulous Foodworks restaurant on Parliament Street, Kilkenny, with their family. "There was great work being done in the kitchen," Kathleen told me.
