Description   Head and shoulders of Gay Byrne in radio studio on 20 March, 1963. There is a set of headphones just visible around his neck. This shot shows Gay Byrne's right profile, he is smiling slightly. It is possible he was presenting the radio programme 'Hospitals' Requests' when this shot was taken.
