‘Who in their right mind would turn down the opportunity of working with the single greatest producer and presenter in Irish broadcasting and beyond?’
I hope Gaybo lands straight on Heaven's doorstep. but straight to the point. Some journo pointed out that It was Dev's Ireland when he came onto the stage of the Late Late.
There is a lot of truth in the title that it was Gay Byrne's Ireland once the Late Late show started. Myself I think this might be a bit pretentious. It was the advent of television.
I'm of an age to remember when the leaders were quite serious about making Irish the main language, when the Hierarchy had editorial control over the media -- and education and health.
But to my question. Now that Dev and Gaybo have gone through those pearly gates, Who's Ireland will it be now?
Micheál Martins ?
Mary Lou's ?
Arlene's hardly! But she'll have a hand in it somehow.
