    I wouldn't wish it on him though.
    Anybody see Byrne on RTE last week with Ben Dunne? Byrne agreed with Dunne when he said that people place way too much importance on material wealth?

    I laughed at the hypocrisy of it!

    Reminds me of the story about a notable RTE presenter who was invited to the house-warming party of a new neighbour and who reputedly sent a bill for his appearance fee the following day, allegedly.

    some posters atritude is GB got what he deserved.

    these are the same posters that rant and rave on other threads how infair the terms of the bailout are.
    Gay Byrne is a greater man than any of you.
    Well, maybe we then should include Gay Byrne in the bailout fund, insofar as most of it,s recipents do not qualify either.

    gaybo commented years ago that when he found out his money was gone, one of the first side-effects was that his handwriting instantly went to hell.

    he literally lost the ability to sign his name. he had of course signed countless cheques for murphy over the years. when he found out about the scam, he simply could not make a signature any more.

    hugh leonard was a sour old bollix if ever there was one.

    The Byrne - Murphy relationship does indeed have echoes of the CJH - Des Traynor partnership.

    Both men entrusted all their financial affairs to svengali-like accounts.

    The difference was that Traynor was not ripping his boss off

    True. Des wasn't ripping off his boss.
    His boss was ripping off anyone that he could.

    No, Des only ripped off the taxman.
    What a scumbag.
