The Independent Broadcasters of Ireland (IBI), the representative body for Ireland’s independent radio broadcasters has offered its sincere condolences to the family and friends of Johnny Lyons.

Chairman of the IBI John Purcell said “Johnny Lyons was a larger than life character. His was a voice synonymous with sport in Dublin for over 20 years. The esteem that he was held in, not only by the radio industry but also by sports organisations and sports stars is evident in the outpouring of tributes that have been paid to him. We send our condolences to Johnny’s family, to his radio family in 98FM and his many thousands of listeners who will miss his unmistakable voice on the airwaves”.
