Marty tells of his love for fish and chips and Killarney

Marty Morrissey: “It’s very hard to beat the Kingdom of Kerry”

KILLARNEY can prepare to organise a lively Marty Party when the lockdown is lifted.

Colourful RTÉ Gaelic games correspondent Marty Morrissey has revealed that Killarney is one of his favourite places in the country for a staycation.

A regular visitor to Fitzgerald Stadium for big games, the popular broadcaster has enjoyed the town’s hospitality on several occasions and he always gets a great reception in the local restaurants and pubs.

The influential commentator, who has nearly 100,000 followers on Twitter and was voted Ireland’s most stylish man, revealed his affection for Killarney during a conversation on home holidays on the Claire Byrne Live show on RTÉ television.

Marty, 62, whose job has seen him travel the length and breadth of the country on several occasions, remarked: “It’s very hard obviously to beat the Kingdom of Kerry”.

He said he loves Dingle and Killarney and he has a special affection for Kenmare. He told the nation that the best chipper in Kerry can be found on the roadside between Kenmare and Templenoe where Kevin Wharton operates a trailer selling fish and chips.

“The fish comes directly from Kenmare Bay and the spuds come from Kenmare as well so it’s fantastic,” he said.
