Marty Morrissey: 'He has become public property'

Marty doth protest too much. Near the end of his new autobiography he declares he is not a celebrity. He also vows that he never wanted to be famous.

But in fact his celebrity is at that level where his surname doesn’t need to be mentioned before people will know who you’re talking about. Marty is enough. More than 30 years after his first match commentary for RTÉ, Morrissey is part of the furniture of national life. He might even indeed be a national treasure.
