14 of the best Pat Kenny moments
In pictures and video: the moments that only Pat could have made.

A version of this post was originally published in January for Pat’s birthday.

PAT KENNY HAS announced that he is leaving RTÉ.

But is he retiring or relaxing in his slippers spending his pension on Werther’s Originals?

No sir. He’s carrying on broadcasting to the nation – on Newstalk – and rocking his luscious head of hair.

In honour of Pat, we’ve collected all your best moments.

That time you wore these lovely glasses

That time Gabriel Byrne dropped the lámh

That time you and Joe and Maxi left Ryan Tubridy out

That time you ripped up the Toy Show tickets on the Late Late Show


That time you met your lovely wife Cathy

That time you met Ulrika-ka-ka-ka Jonsson

That time you almost met Tom Cruise

And then you did meet Tom Cruise

That time you met this dog

That time you wore this tracksuit

That time you had the LOLs with Michael Noonan and Brendan Howlin aka The Ladz

That time you got offended on The Frontline


That time you were super cool

The time you called Jerry Seinfeld Jerry Seinfield. We’re still not able for it


Farewell, Pat! Let us play you out:
