*Liz Gillis and Marty Morrissey.
QUILTY’S MARTY MORRISSEY is to front a television show which begins on RTÉ this weekend.
Marty who is RTÉ’s Gaelic Games correspondent will present ‘Marty’s Big Picture Show’ alongside Dublin historian Liz Gillis. The six part series begins on Sunday evening at 7:30pm on RTÉ One.
Sixty four year old Marty said he was “delighted and excited” about the show which sees them uncover the work of Ireland’s photographers.
For the first episode, they will explore Limerick in the 1970s through the lens of photographer Gerry Andrews.
A proud Clareman, Marty attended St Flannan’s College and previously spent four years as a teacher in St Joseph’s Spanish Point and was named Clare Person of the Year in 2014.
Liz’s connections to the county are not as strong but she did launch ‘The Scariff Martys’, the book written by award-winning Tuamgraney oral historian Tomás Mac Conmara.
Marty is seen as one of the potential replacements for Ryan Tubridy on his weekly morning radio show on RTÉ Radio One alongside Olvier Callan, Brendan Courtney and Kathyrn Thomas.
