Gay Byrne's wife Kathleen Watkins has said the veteran broadcaster has received "very good" results from chemotherapy as he continues his treatment for prostate cancer.
Author Watkins shared the news with the Irish Independent when she attended the opening of John B Keane's Sive at Dublin's Gaiety Theatre on Tuesday night.
Byrne did not attend the show as he had a check-up today.
"He is finished the chemo that they added in, so he is recovering from that," Watkins told the paper. "The results were very good."
"There are thousands of people nine million times worse than I am and you just go through it and you do the best you can and you follow the rules," he said.
