    I thought he died ages ago. Was he not done foe some manner of trousering trocaire funds? I really should google before i post..

      “In the early 1980s Carr, who had been chairman of both the Drugs Advisory Service and of the Health Education Bureau, was involved with The Friends of Gorta, the famine relief charity. “Rumours began to circulate about my having run off with funds. I did nothing about it for about six months and then I went on the radio and asked the gossips to tell me all about it. No one phoned in and that was that.”

      He always struck me as a decent guy, though like you, I thought he’d long since passed.

    At the time, the BBC were running quizzes with hundreds of pounds as prize money, plus caravans, washing machines and tea-makers. On Quicksilver you had 5p questions.

    Stop all the lights, muffle Terry Prone
    Take 50p off the board that you’ll be taking home
    Silence the nostalgia, polish the Silver Quick,
    Bring out the RTE archive, play the tribute clip.
