WE WERE delighted when we heard that GAA commentator and all round Clare legend Marty Morrissey will storm the stage in season two of Dancing with the Stars.

Marty cha-cha-cha’d onto the set of the Late Late Show on Friday night, confirming his participation along with Conor McGregor’s sister Erin and entrepreneur Norah Casey.

Speaking on the Late Late, Marty said that the show would take him out of his comfort zone, but he was looking forward to the challenge.

“I think I am half cracked to be perfectly honest, but we’ll do it for the fun, we’ll do it for a bit of entertainment and it’s a challenge,” he added.

As a former contestant on Dancing with the Stars, Clare Echo resident ‘Love Clare’ columnist Aoibhin Garrihy said she was delighted to hear Marty will be stepping out for the Banner in the new series.

“Marty tested my frame last year, before the grand final and ever since then I figured he would be the man to bring the glitter ball home,” she said.

Along with Erin McGregor and Norah Casey, Marty will be joined by Bernard O’Shea, Deirdre O’Kane, Maia Dunphy, Jake Carter, Anna Geary, Tomas O’Leary, Rob Heffernan and Aoife Walsh.

Marty and co will don the glitzy gear for the first show Sunday, January 7 on RTE One.

Fair play Marty, we’ll be rooting for ya!
