He finished chemo and says the signs are good:

Yet, there's an undertone that it isn't over, and it feels to me as if it only is a respite. I have a feeling it will be back in the fall, and more severe. Maybe charon is right?

Even if he beats this cancer the battle the battle has taken somewhat of a toll on Byrne. I predict he won't be alive in 5 years.

Here's a Gay update:

Gay Byrne has confirmed that a return to the airwaves is not on the horizon despite interest from former employer RTÉ, revealing to the Sunday Independent's Life magazine that his family have told him he is "not up to it at the moment" after recently receiving treatment for prostate cancer.  'Gaybo' hasn't been live on air since early 2017, months after he admitted on his show on RTÉ Lyric FM that he had been diagnosed with the disease and was due to begin treatment for it. The broadcasting legend told the publication that though there is mutual interest in his return from both the station and himself, his wife and daughters have placed a caring but firm veto on it.

RIP Mr Byrne. Loved the Late Late Toy Show when I was a kid. Never got any of the toys as Xmas presents but there you go.

What a missed opportunity to not have him on this years list. How sad. RIP Uncle Gaybo.
