RTÉ deny they're spending €70,000 on a life-sized Gerry Ryan statue

They are planning a memorial but the event will be “marked privately”.

RTÉ HAVE DENIED that they are commemorating the late 2fm presenter Gerry Ryan with a life-sized bronze statue.

The Sunday World today claimed that the broadcaster commissioned Kilkenny sculptor Patrick O’Reilly to create the statue which would have cost €70,000 to produce.

However, RTÉ took to Twitter today to quash the report.

The story printed in today’s Sunday World is inaccurate and incorrect.

2fm are planning a memorial to Gerry Ryan but it is not a life size statue and it does not cost €70k or anything close it.

This is event will be marked privately.
