The Tipperary launch of the recently published biography ‘Ireland’s Aviator’ which tells the life story of Tony Ryan, will take place in the Tipperary Excel on September 28.

Kell Ryan, brother of Tony and Simon, after whom the Simon Ryan Theatre is named, will launch the biography, which will form part of the major fundraising event, The Premier Late Late Show.

Hosted by Fran Curry from Tipp Fm, The Premier Late Late Show will feature interviews with some of Tipperary’s stars and sporting heroes.

Kerry Ryan, daughter of the late Simon Ryan and niece of Tony Ryan said of the event: “It is both fitting and poignant that the biography will have a launch in Tipperary, the place of Tony’s birth and location of the Simon Ryan Theatre which he co-funded and named after his brother Simon.”
