Marty Morrissey. That is All...

In all the years we've been shooting Irish celeb types we've managed to miss yer man Marty Morrissey for the most part. And what a sublimely shaped headed man he is with a unique aesthetic that's almost mythical yet indescribable. Yup. We snapped our Marty at 'I Dreamed A Dream - The Susan Boyle Story' this week...

Marty Morrissey

The bould Marty Morrissey is a legend in Irish sports broadcasting terms but c'mon folks, he don't look like yer standard country paddy broadcaster with big rosy cheeks, one curly black tooth, and a young pig under his arm... In fact, we can't really nail down what he looks like, yet we can't help staring at his face - mesmerizing, aint it?

Marty Morrissey

And considering we've been at this game for nigh on 13 years, the Marty fella somehow has managed to slip by our snappers. Well, until we attended 'I Dreamed A Dream - The Susan Boyle Story' at The Grand Canal Theatre this week... Like, they could be brother and sister.

Mary Kennedy

And our Susan must be popular over at RTE as there was loads of those Montrose maniacs amongst the GCT guests which included: Mary Kennedy, Diana Bunici, Amy Creighton, Ann Marie Plunket, Orla Montague, Maire Jones, Aonghus McAnally, Ronnie Masterson, and many more...

Diana Bunici

So there you have it folks, I Dreamed A Dream opened this week in Dublin so check it out if that's your thing.... Hmmmm, funny how you never see Marty Morrissey and Susan Boyle in the same room. Ever wondered about that?

Amy Creighton

Ann Marie Plunket, Orla Montague

Maire Jones, Aonghus McAnally, Ronnie Masterson

Marty's a sound man. Hopefully, he'll be down in Pearse Park at the end of May to watch us thrash Laois in 1st round of the Leinster!!!

Mr. Morrissay provides a wonderful and enlightening review of this play. Totally professional and enticing. I Dreamed a Dream - a stageplay not to be missed.

Ah jesus lads would you have a bit of maturity,what a waste of a journalism degree if your now stooping as low as to pick on someone for the shape of their head/features, something that they can't help, and shouldnt be the subject of this atricle.
You remove comments all the time about peoples i.e "Models" overdone tan, messy hair ext's and in general plastic added on bits and now you are practically encouraging nasty comments. nice work.

A cross between Susan Boyle and a hard boiled egg!

More like a cross between a catfish and Betty Boop for me.

Diana Bunici looks good when she dresses like a proper grown-up and not like a childrens' TV presenter.

Marty was totally gobsmacked by IDAD. His is one of the most thorough and accurate reviews I've read. Thank you, Marty!
