Wexford's '56 All-Ireland hurling victory one of Michael's top ten

LEGENDARY commentator Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh has picked the Wexford hurling team's All-Ireland victory of '56 as one of his all-time favourite memories.

Mr Ó Muircheartaigh last week announced that he is retiring, with last weekend's All-Ireland Final win for Cork his last one for RTE.

The Star Sunday last weekend published a magazine chronicling Micheál's 'Top 50' Championship moments, selected from his 62 years of commentating, and right up there in the top ten was the great Wexford team's unforgettable win over Cork in the '56 All-Ireland Hurling Final.
