Thread Name: Anne Byrne: What does she now?
Subject: RE: Anne Byrne: What does she now?
RTE stands for Radio Teilifis (Television) Eireann (Ireland) and WWW.RTE.ie ought to bring you there. If you follow the links for a TV program called Come West Along the Road there may be some info there.
I talked to a couple of people last night who remembered her well from the 60s/early 70s and they also said that she had married a musician. Although they mentioned Jesse Owens they didn't think it was him, but it may have been Paddy Roche. The consensus seemed to be that Anne had given up her singing career when she got married and had a family etc., although they seemed to think that she still did the occasional gig, but probably just local stuff rather than anything big time.
I'll see if a search for Anne Roche shows up anything. I'll let you know if I can come up with any additional info.
