RTE’s Claire Byrne. Shedgate? Why the silence?
Do you ever get the feeling you’ve been led up the garden path and back again? The questions surrounding Claire Byrne’s garden shed certainly indicate that all is not as it seems. Did the RTÉ presenter really present Claire Byrne Live from her garden shed at her home in Bray, Co Wicklow in March 2020….
Aside from HSE compliant Byrne looking and sounding perfectly healthy, the wood panelling behind her sleekly coiffed bob looked freshly constructed, as if newly built…
… this was the tidiest garden shed of all time. No clutter. No shivering March temperatures. No passing traffic sounds. Why not the spare room in the main house for some comfort and heat? How curious. Time passed. Byrne apparently got Covid again in April 2022… was back in the famous garden shed, not a hair out of place, the picture of health, complying with those HSE regulations with virtue signalling glee.
…Brave Byrne somehow, miraculously, struggled on and managed to broadcast a live prime-time show from her garden shed. For three weeks in a row. What a trooper.

No nuance allowed. And ISAG.
Wide-ranging, insightful conversation between Gerry O’Neill and Irish ex-pat Ewan MacKenna – Journalist, author & broadcaster.
You will have yours, but two stand outs for me:
- Our culture now prevents nuanced perspectives and conversations. Ask a question, drop a hint and we are instantly categorised as either pro- or anti- … vax… lockdown… Putin… Ukraine… no middle ground allowed.
- In the current lull it’s easy to forget things. Like ISAG1the Independent Scientific Advocacy Group members deceiving politicians, scaremongering approach and desire to sort things with a good hurley and no witnesses.
