Following the news of Gay Bryne’s tragic passing this week, RTE aired a very special episode of the Late Late Show to say goodbye to the beloved presenter, who hosted the iconic Irish programme for nearly four decades.

The 90-minute special, hosted by Ryan Tubridy, featured with contributions from friends and colleagues, including Pat Kenny, Bob Geldof and Mary McAleese.

Viewers were overcome with emotion watching the heartfelt show, and took to social media afterwards to share their love of Gaybo.
