A Killarney youngster who endeared hundreds of thousands on the Late Late Toy Show and met his hero Wexford Hurling Manager Davy Fitzgerald – will appear in an RTE documentary next week.

Michael O’Brien (11), son of Noreen and Michael, will feature in RTE One’s 'When Michael Met Davy’ on Monday, August 5, at 6.30pm.

And not only that - Michael exclusively told the Killarney Advertiser yesterday (Thursday) - that Davy rang him yesterday morning – and invited him to watch this Sunday’s Wexford V Tipperary All-Ireland Hurling Semi-Final – which will be Michael’s first ever trip to Croke Park.

The film crew spent some time with Michael and his family, filmed him giving an inspirational talk to the Wexford team at the Innovate Wexford Park in February, and his time with Davy.

And the St Oliver’s NSpupilsaid he’s very excited that it’s being aired.

“They filmed us for weeks. The lead up to me meeting Davy and it’ll show my inspiring speech to the team,” Michael told the Killarney Advertiser.

And he added that he’s very excited about Sunday’s game.

“Davy rang and invited me and I’m going to take up the offer. I’m excited and it’ll be my first ever trip to Croke Park. I want to wish the Wexford team the best of luck. They’re one step closer and I have faith they can do it.”

His mom Noreen added that she’s very grateful everyone in the community who supports Michael and their family.

“I want to say thanks for all the support and everyone who helped get him to where he is today.”

The successes of the Kerry, Munster and All-Ireland Fleadh’s were celebrated with Kilcummin CCÉ members, their families and friends in the clubhouse in Kilcummin on Sunday night.

The talent within the branch was clearly evident with a packed trophies table. Indeed some of the successes over the last number of months were replayed in a relaxed, jovial atmosphere that meant that all attending had a great night’s entertainment.

“We had demonstrations of winning sets across all age groups and then we moved onto the musicians who pulled out all the stops to entertain the large crowd, packed into the clubhouse,” Derek O’Leary, Kilcummin CCÉ PRO, told the Killarney Advertiser.

John Moriarty, who has recently retired from his role of Supervisor with Kilcummin Rural Development was acknowledged with a presentation to reflect the outstanding work that he has done to enhance and grow Kilcummin Comhaltas over his 25 years in his role, he added.

“Much thanks and praise was also offered to Mary, Adrian and Conor Moriarty, all involved in the progression of dancing and music within the Kilcummin branch. The music and entertainment continued with Helen Kerins and Denis Crowley late into the night. We’re looking forward to next year already!”
