Gaybo's daughter Crona says she had no issue with Tayto social media post

A daughter of Gay Byrne believes her late father would have been amused at the controversy over the use of a sad Mr Tayto crisp mascot reacting to news he had died.

Mr Byrne (85) died on Monday after a long battle with prostate cancer.

Crisp manufacturer Tayto deleted the social media post after thousands of objections online.

His eldest daughter, Crona, commented after family friend and broadcaster Gareth O’Callaghan slammed the removal of the image from Twitter as an “over-reaction”. She said: “I certainly don’t have an issue with the post from Mr Tayto and I certainly don’t think Dad would have had either!!”

Mr Byrne’s funeral Mass is in the Pro-Cathedral on Marlborough Street, Dublin, today followed by a private burial at St Fintan’s cemetery in Sutton.
