He was a great supporter of motorsport in the County too and covered many of the local rallies live on Radio Kerry.
He also wrote about local rally crews in Kerry’s Eye and the Tralee Advertiser.

He was a great supporter of all our events and covered Kerry motorsport in the many media outlets he worked for over the years, particularly live broadcasts on Radio Kerry.
He will be sadly missed, especially this weekend when he would have been hanging out in the service park for the Kerry Winter Rally as he filled his notebooks with news on local crews
Rest in Peace and thank you for all have done for motorsport and other sports that would not have got coverage only for your work.
