Weeshie receives Mac Namee Hall of Fame Award

WeeshieRadio Kerry’s Weeshie Fogarty was presented with the 2015 Hall of Fame Award at last night’s Mac Namee Awards. The awards were presented by Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael, Aogán Ó Fearghail, at a function in Croke Park. They are presented annually in recognition of outstanding contributions made by individuals and Association units in the area of media and communications. Weeshie played senior football for Kerry and when his playing career was over, he turned to refereeing and became one of the leading inter-county referees in the country, taking charge of three all All-Ireland football semi-finals. However, for younger GAA supporters ‘Weeshie’ is probably best known for his insightful analysis on Radio Kerry and his engaging Monday evening ‘Terrace Talk’ programme. Weeshie also published his life story in a book appropriately named ‘My Beautiful Obsession, Chasing the Kerry Dream.’
