Edward "Eddy" Byrne was a contestant in Series 71. An Apterite, he is well known for saying the word BOURGEOIS an awful lot, as well as that word being one of the few that people understand what he is saying. Despite being Irish, he does not like Guinness, but loves drinking so much that his pot of gold at the end of the rainbow is empty.
In 2016, he participated in the Irish Open Scrabble tournament.
In 2020, he appeared on First Dates Ireland on RTÉ 2.
