Murray passes away

JOSIE Murray was a Leitrim Lion. He was also the father of the Cuala chairman, Declan Murray.

Josie's death last week saw the memories tumbling forth.

He was one of Leitrim's most celebrated footballers. He captained the county to the All-Ireland Minor final of 1956.

He represented Connacht many times in the Railway Cup. He was the only non-Galway player on a Connacht Railway Cup hurling team in the late 60's.

DJ is now on the ball

THE Cats keep on producing the hits on hurling's Tin Pan Alley.

One of their most famous sons, DJ Carey, has now taken to the airways.

He has joined Newstalk's Off The Ball crew.

"I'm relishing the challenge, and I'm sure we will have some fun along the way," said the maestro.
