Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh says key to longevity is looking ahead

Looking forward to the day ahead is Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh’s mantra and key to his longevity.

The West Kerry man and former GAA commentator celebrates his 90th birthday today.

He was born in Dún Síon, but now lives in Co Meath; he first commentated for RTÉ in 1949, and continued to do so up until 2010.

Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh, who’s currently visiting Dingle, says he takes his inspiration from a prayer passed onto him by his grandmother.
