The Radio Kerry Kevin Casey Award for Young Sports Journalists

In memory of our former colleague and friend Kevin Casey from Glenflesk, Radio Kerry would like to recognise and help a young sports journalist follow in Kevin’s footsteps.

To help them on the road the winning journalist will win a free place on our week long summer camp here in Radio Kerry where they will learn journalism and radio skills. They will also get the chance to sit in our award winning Terrace Talk Programme, and attend a match with a Radio Kerry commentary team.

In order to enter you must be aged between 15 and 18 and must forward a 500  word written sports report on any topic of your choice to [email protected] or to Radio Kerry, Maine St, Tralee by 5pm on Wednesday March 29th.

Please include contact details and your date of birth on the entry.

The award will be presented at “ A Night for Kevin” which takes place in the Gleneagle Hotel on Saturday night April 1st – proceeds from which go to the Casey family and the Irish Cancer Society.

(Tickets available from James O Connor on 087 688 3310)
