The Legendary Casey Brothers

The Legendary Casey Brothers
In 1982 the seven Casey brothers were inducted into the Irish Sports Hall of Fame, the only family ever to receive that honour. The brothers, from Sneem in County Kerry, starred as Olympic-class oarsmen, Tug-of-War champions, professional wrestlers and boxers and won fame throughout the sporting world. Steve, known as 'Crusher' Casey, became the supreme wrestler in the world and for a decade no one could match him. When he turned to boxing, the great Joe Louis refused to go into the ring with him. In 1983 at a family reunion in Sneem, five brothers, all in their seventies, climbed into the four-oar boat they used to win championships in the 1930s. Although they had not rowed together in fifty years, they still moved with their former natural unity.

Sports people from Kerry have achieved fame in many fields but the success of the Caseys surely outshines all.

Weeshie's Week

  • In Memory of My Mother - Mary O'Sullivan
    July 20, 2015
    1918-2014 I went with my mother to my first All-Ireland final in 1955 and sat on her knee in the Cusack Stand. In those days, children could be lifted over the stile with no questions asked. My father walked with us to the entrance, helped me to climb over and then watched from the terraces. Kerry ... more
