Gay Byrne is a refreshing read

Sir -- At this time of wall-to-wall politics (yawn), it is refreshing to read Gay Byrne (A Log), and I have to say he is very entertaining in his musings. Gay is a man I'd love to sit down and have a good chat with. I know it's a cliche to say there will never be another Gay, but in my opinion there won't. Nobody can replace him, either on radio or The Late Late Show on television.

He's a true professional and a thorough gentleman -- a man who always appears to keep the bright side up, and who never moans and groans (except tongue in cheek). You can keep your Pat Kennys and the rest, and believe me these people can easily be replaced.

What other country would pay them such enormous salaries for talking on radio? None is the answer. Gay did so much for this country, both through his radio and TV, and he helped vast amounts of people in so many ways.
