Waterford and Ardmore football legend Johnny Hennessey will be inducted into the Munster Hall of fame at tonight’s Gala function at Fota Island Resort.
Johnny was a winner of three Railway Cup medals in the 1970’s and played a key role in Munster’s victory in 1978 as he lined out at wing forward.
Johnny also won a county senior football title with Ardmore in 1977 and starred in a golden era for Waterford football as they reached Division 1 of the National League.
Johnny told WLR Sport playing with Munster alongside some of the greatest ever players was a brilliant experience
Johnny was a selector with the Waterford U-21 footballers in 2003 as they won a terrific Munster Championship, and was also delighted to see his beloved Ardmore win the All-Ireland Junior hurling title earlier this year.
Johnny chatted to Gavin on last night’s Lár Na Páirce’ GAA show, have a listen back here:
