Remembering Morrissey

A posthumous tribute to Mick Morrissey, Wexford hurling hero of the 1950s, will be incorporated into a show inducting his brother, Moling, into an All-Ireland hall of fame on Friday, December 16.

Further details are available at, an Irish heritage website established in 2005 with the aim of promoting and preserving golden memories of legends of sport, music and history.

The great Nickey Rackard has already been included, along with the likes of Jimmy Doyle, Roy Keane, Dr. Pat O'Callaghan, John Doyle, Christy Ring, Jimmy Keaveney, George Best, W.B. Yeats, James Joyce, Michael Collins and Joe Dolan.

Moling Morrissey, the former St. Mullins and Carlow hurler, is the latest man to be honoured, with the event taking place in The Duiske Inn, Graiguenamanagh, on Friday week.

And on the night Moling's niece, Marie Waldron, will represent her late father, Mick, and will be presented with a specially-commissioned memento in honour of his hurling heroics with Wexford.

Mick, who also started his playing career with St. Mullins and Carlow, won three All-Ireland Senior medals in the purple and gold.
