Marty Morrissey and dream team get ready for GAA radio show
A week after he was labelled "ugly" by an RTE colleague, Marty Morrissey is getting his own radio show.
The commentator will present RTE's new GAA show The Marty Squad and will be joined by a host of Irish sporting stars.
The show, which will air for the first time this Sunday on RTE Radio One at 6pm, will feature a panel of familiar names including former Roscommon goalkeeper Shane Curran, former Kilkenny hurler David Herity and newly retired Cork camogie star Anna Geary.
Marty will also co-present the show with fellow RTE star Paddy McKenna, while broadcaster Brenda Donohue will travel the country getting the opinion of fans.
The show adds to what looks to be a busy summer for Clare man Marty, who is also the presenter of RTE Two's GAA magazine show Championship Matters.
"To win an All-Ireland takes a great squad of players and it's the same for radio," he said about the new show. I am delighted to be part of this new squad."
Marty was in the spotlight recently after pundit Joe Brolly called him "ugly" while discussing Cavan's style of football on The Sunday Game.
Despite the Derryman's on-screen apology to the popular presenter, Brolly was reprimanded for his comments by RTE.
