Radio star Lottie Ryan has opened up on how her family pay tribute to her late father Gerry on special occasions like Christmas.

The 2fm presenter’s legendary dad passed away in 2008, and she has revealed that the Ryan clan like to remember him in the most positive way.

She said: “Obviously any holiday, I suppose you remember your loved ones but Christmas is nothing but really good, happy memories and it’s a time to smile and remember the good times.

“We have nothing but good conversations where everyone would be laughing recalling memories, so it’s a good time.”

Lottie added that the family has a Mass said for him, but they usually tell their most cherished anecdotes of Gerry so that it’s “just more of the same”.

One of these stories include the time her dad burnt the Christmas dinner – which probably wasn’t funny at the time but it’s now a fond memory.

“It was burnt to a cinder, but that was when my dad was cooking it,” the 29-year-old said. “But Rex (her brother) does it now and he’s a fabulous chef.”

“Not that he (Gerry) wasn’t a great chef. He was, but we haven’t had a burnt one yet, so Rex is doing a good job.

“Rex is big into his food, so consequently we all get to eat very well. It’s the full shebang – he goes all out,” she said.

The Clontarf native also told The Herald that she will be working up until Christmas, but she’s looking forward to a short break from the airwaves on the big day itself.
