As the 'Gay Byrne Show' on radio comes to an end friends, family and colleagues gather in the radio to centre to pay a surprise tribute to Gay Byrne.

The hugely popular 'Gay Byrne Show' came to an end in December 1998. While presenting one of his last shows, Gay Byrne was surprised in studio by Mike Murphy who hosted a tribute from family, friends and colleagues in Studio One in the Radio Centre.

Contributions came from musicians, celebrities and politicians, including Taoiseach Bertie Ahern and the President, who all praised a unique broadcaster who had pioneered the concept of talk radio in Ireland.
