'God's Minister Man of the People', a radio documentary on the life and times of Father Kevin Connolly is set to air on LMFM on New Year's Eve.
Though it's not far off 40 years since Fr. Connolly died, his legacy as a wonderful sportsman and cleric who got things done is alive and well especially in Drogheda and Keady where the Ravensdale born priest really made his mark.
LMFM'S Gerry Kelly pieces together Kevin's life through the eyes of the dynamic cleric's family, sporting associates and friends who recall their memories of a man who was 'way before his time'.
Kelly always wanted to remember Fr. Kevin, who was revered in the broadcaster's home by his late parents. The broadcaster was fascinated by the Lourdes Stadium, Connolly's brainchild, from the first time he went there as a young boy in the late sixties to watch Drogheda play in the League of Ireland.
Be sure to tune in on Tuesday, December 31, at 12 noon for the hour long programme.
