You're on the Field with Terrace Talk!
This is the official online archive of Weeshie Fogarty's renowned Radio Kerry show, Terrace Talk. Featuring audio interviews with some of Ireland's greatest sporting legends and personalities, this website was the result of Weeshie's own desire to archive all of these classic interviews and make them available to Irish sports fans around the world.
We are also proud to be able to offer many other interesting audio downloads including the match commentaries from the past 10 All Ireland Football Finals involving Kerry. Also available for download is the complete series of the excellent "The Greatest Day" episodes that were produced by the Radio Kerry Sports Team detailing each of Kerry's 36 All Ireland Titles.
All of Weeshie's writings on Kerry Football and other sports as well as his sporting memories stretching back to 1955 are included on the website. Check out hundreds of classic Kerry GAA photographs from down through the years as well as snapshots of guests in the Terrace Talk studio.
Browse through every game that Kerry played in the Championship from 1928 to 2010, as well as National League games from 1950 to 2010. In addition, we have a record of all players who played for Kerry and the clubs which they hailed from.
