Here's the note Gerry Ryan sent Ian Dempsey on his first day at RTÉ in 1980

“Just a little note…”

THIRTY-FIVE YEARS ago yesterday, Ian Dempsey joined RTÉ to present The Weekend Breakfast Show on 2FM.

On that day, his colleague Gerry Ryan – who had joined the station a year earlier – sent him this encouraging welcome note.

Dear Ian,

Just a little note to wish you good luck with the old prog. this morning, only one thing to remember, you can’t say bollox on the radio!

Good luck,

Gerry Ryan

RIP Gerry.
