Gerry Ryan’s ex-wife Morah dating Limerick songwriter Don Mescall

Has Morah found love again?


Gerry Ryan’s former wife Morah is reportedly dating Limerick songwriter Don Mescall.

Ten years after the broadcaster’s tragic death, it’s believed Morah has found love again after meeting Don at a gig last month.

The pair had originally met at RTÉ when Morah and Gerry’s daughter Bonnie performed ‘I’m Out’, a single she had co-written with Don, on The Ray D’Arcy Show back in 2016.

A source has told The Irish Sun: “Since Gerry died, Morah made her five children her priority. But now they are grown up, she can take some time for herself.”

“Her friends are thrilled she has now met someone as nice as Don.”

It’s believed Morah and Don have been in “daily contact” ever since they reconnected at the Celebration of Shay Healy gig in Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre on November 3.

The source continued: “This is something very special for Morah and Don. They’ve created this special bond in such a short period of time and are really excited about it.”

“But they’re also nervous about the news getting out and how people will react.”

“Don is a shy kind of guy. He’s not used to the spotlight but he has strong feelings for Morah. He’s resigned himself to the news getting out sometime soon.”

Morah split from legendary broadcaster Gerry Ryan back in 2008 after 26 years of marriage.

Two years later, the presenter died suddenly on April 30th, 2010, at the age of 53.

During their marriage, Morah and Gerry welcomed five children together – Lottie, 32, Rex, 30, Bonnie, 26, Elliott 24, and Babette, 19.
