THE LAST TIME I met Gay Byrne – and now it will be the last time – was almost a year ago. As soon as Gay was in front of it, he seemed to lose the pallor that had been evident when he arrived. He had the crowd laughing immediately at his tale of his early encounters with the Beatles – not in Dublin

He confessed that he had never heard of the Fab Four before, who were only starting out.

‘I hadn’t really heard of them up until then but I was known to them as I was on the TV every day,’ Gay said.

‘I was doing this show and reading the late night news so as far as they were concerned I was a star.’

The New York Times reported that in the future, the Beatles would “ manage themselves.” In 2013, a best-selling graphic novel called “The Fifth Beatle ” focused on Epstein’s importance to music history and his struggles with being gay at a time when his country deemed his sexual orientation illegal.

It was during soundcheck that Paul McCartney approached Gaybo with the offer of a life-time.

‘In the middle of the soundcheck Paul McCartney came to me and said, “Would you like to be our agent? We don’t have one and we think you would make a terrific agent”‘

However, Gay Byrne turned down the Yesterday singer’s offer, as he was far too busy to manage the band.

‘I told Paul I was up to my ears between doing four days a week in Manchester and going back to Dublin each weekend for the Late Late.’

Later on, The Beatles found a manager in Brian Epstein and became the biggest rock band of all time.

It’s not an entirely missed opportunity as Gay became a legendary icon of Irish broadcasting.

Gay Byrne passed away on Monday after a long battle with prostate cancer.

‘We are all greatly saddened by the passing of Gay Byrne who has been a household name in this country for so many years,’ RTÉ Director-General, Dee Forbes, said in tribute to Mr. Byrne. ‘Gay was an exceptional broadcaster whose unique and ground-breaking style contributed so much to the development of radio and television in this country. Gay’s journalistic legacy is as colossal as the man himself – he not only defined generations, but he deftly arbitrated the growth and development of a nation. Ireland grew up under Gay Byrne, and we will never see his like again. My deepest sympathies to Kathleen and his family.’

He had a number of memorable and great TV moments throughout his celebrated career.
