SERIOUS question - does Marty Morrissey ever get a holiday?

His perma-tan would suggest the RTÉ sportscaster does get plenty of sun but, in fairness, he has been working hard for the past month or so, covering big match previews, post-match interviews, homecomings and of course the games themselves.

In between all this zig-zagging around the country, the bould Marty somehow finds time to judge a few best-dressed competitions at the racecourse. Up he popped at Galway last Friday to crown Sarah McDermott from Newbridge, Co Kildare winner of the Athlone Towncentre Most Stylish at the Races prize.

Sarah won €3,500 worth of prizes at Galway and hopefully she got a kiss from Marty as well. She just got engaged to boyfriend Eoin Stakelum and we wouldn’t be surprised if Marty turned up at the wedding to give them his blessing.
