Interview with Marty Morissey

Amy and Cara interviewed Marty Morrissey at the Bank Of Ireland Nenagh Enterprise Town Event. He gave us his thoughts on the change n format to the Hurling and Football Championships. He also spoke about moving the All Ireland Hurling Final and how he’s not sure that the move is a good one. One reason he gave is that in September the schools are open and so there will be a lack of colour that is known to be seen around this time when the final is in august. He also spoke about how he is involved in the Enterprise Scheme with Bank Of Ireland.
