About this event

A Handwritten History of Ireland. Gay Byrne received thousands of letters from listeners all over Ireland.

With his trademark balance of compassion, empathy and humour, Gay read out letters on subjects such as women’s rights, domestic and institutional abuse, mental health and homosexuality, sparking nationwide conversation and debate. These letters have been lovingly compiled by Gay’s daughter Suzy Byrne into a new book.

Journalist Olivia O'Leary will discuss the importance of the letters in conversation with Suzy Byrne and Gay's widow, Kathleen Watkins. Extracts from Dear Gay will also be read by actor Cathy Belton.
