One of Irelands favorite Radio and TV presenters was found dead in his apartment yesterday - Gerry Ryan - a true interviewing hero died aged just 56 years old - Gerry was always willing to take on the corrupt politicians and social issues that many would have prefered to hide from - A great man - A Great loss - I know many here wont know Gerry but I had to pay tribute to him
Gerry Ryan a Tribute
Gerry you were a hero
One of the very best
You were fearless and professional
And so stood out from the rest
Your interviews were magic
No stone was left unturned
Without your searching character
Much would have went unlearned
I am sorry that you’re gone now
Things just won’t be the same
You were one of a kind
A replacement not easy to find
I know you are in heaven
For that’s where you belong
We will not forget you
We the ordinary folk
Your witty yarns
And spontaneous joke
Take care now in Heaven
I’m sure God has work for you
I guess God just wanted
A famous Ryan interview
I take great offence that you have placed spam on a thread where I am paying tribute to a good man who died yesterday - what goes around comes around my friend.
hi my work place will never be the same without his voice echoing around the place. am in the u.k. my daughter told me, but i have no details. Do you know wha he died of. slan
our thoughts are with him for sure, irish.
he obviously touched many people
we'll keep this thread alive
he certainly will watched him do great interview with Hailey Mills Thursday night
you do travel dont you - I am a home bird - ireland is my real love
well i am very old i have a son who is a teacher in Florida, he has a son with autism, his wife is American, so we went to see the family. i am from greater Manchester originally. We come up to Belfast sometimes for short breaks...... so you are irish, i am not but i have grandchildren with good irish names now. Erin, Cian and Aidan....
actually the old word i think is badly misused - I know many 'young' people who are as interesting as a stone - so I like to think of people as being mature in wisdom - mind you there are many who should have wisdom but dont
If you get time read a chapter of my book and let me know how it is written - is it easy to follow - that type of thing - i would appreciate that
Quick Hijack Irish I need you to check the comment I left on your Hubtrails Hub.
Sorry for the Hijack.

Gerry needs a bit of a bump
with love and much respect
