'Kerry Is' by Weeshie Fogarty
Our condolences to Weeshie’s family. An absolute Gentleman, a legend in his own time and a legendary voice of Kerry GAA. So many happy memories of his unique commentary and turns of phrase
Killarney Legion Gaa Club were deeply saddened to learn this morning of the passing of club President Weeshie Fogarty (March 1941). Weeshie has been synonymous with the club throughout his life, he has served the club in every capacity from player, trainer, mentor and officer in the club. Weeshie was a member of the clubs winning O’Donoghue cup team of 1967. Weeshie also represented Kerry with distinction at minor, U-21, Junior and Senior level. Weeshie won an All Ireland Junior medal in 1967 and he was a member of the victorious All Ireland senior winning team of 1969. Weeshie also represented East Kerry where he won 4 county championships and one All Ireland club championship. When an unfortunate injury cut short his playing career 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. Weeshie was heavily involved in all club activities and was the driving force behind the publication of the book A Legion of memories which detailed the history of the club through its first 50 years. Weeshie was of course known throughout the country for his work with Radio Kerry show Terrace Talk, which featured audio interviews with some of Ireland's greatest sporting legends and personalities. Weeshie was awarded a Mcnamee award in 2004 and he was inducted to McNamee hall of fame in 2016. The word legend is sometimes over used but Weeshie Fogarty was a club legend and his passing leaves a huge void in our club. The club would like to extend our deepest sympathies to his wife Joan son Kieran daughters Denise & Carolann and his extended family and his many friends. Funeral details to follow.

Their only hope in regaining some measure of normality lies in a horse called Apollo...." ... See more
A great servant of Kerry GAA - thank you Kieran and enjoy your retirement
Today I wish to announce my retirement from the Kerry Senior Football team. The journey has been full of ups and downs but I never wanted it to end.
