Carlow All Time Greats: Profile #5 Brendan Hennessy

Carlow man Brendan Hennessy is fast becoming one of the most legendary sports broadcasters of all time for his breathtaking commentary on matches from All-Ireland finals to Intermediate finals. 

He started out on stage with school pantos and various talent competitions in the early years and is a past pupil of the CBS and Carlow Vocational School.

He did his very first radio commentary in 1995 from Croke Park and is now working as a freelance radio and TV commentator with eir Sport, Premier Sports TV, Ireland AM and Virgin Media.

But his heart always lies with the local station KCLR for all of Carlow’s GAA games.

His motto is "always be yourself and don’t ever try to be like anyone else".
