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.

  • No place to hide as Dubs hand out a hiding
    February 2, 2016
    Croke Park can be a very cruel and unwelcoming place for footballers when things go badly wrong be it in the high summer of championship or under the bright floodlights of a cold hard January night in a league game. There is simply no place to hide. And that's exactly the way it was last Saturday ... more
  • Renewal of an age old rivalry in Croke Park
    January 26, 2016
    And so it's a renewal of the age old rivalry in Croke Park next Saturday and while I can't talk for anyone else I certainly never get tired of a Kerry/ Dublin clash be in in league or championship and no doubt both sets of supporters will come out in force to see this re-run of the All-Ireland ... more
  • The North Kerry Championship really is different to all the rest
    January 19, 2016
    It was the highly distinctive northern accent that caught my ear as I pulled in to the car park at the Bob Stack Memorial Park Ballybunnion for the recent North Kerry football championship final re-play. It stood out like a beacon in the night, welcoming, friendly and obviously anxious to talk ... more
  • The Heart and Soul of Kerry Football
    January 12, 2016
    It's a near impossible task really, to capture in writing the heart and soul of Kerry football, to write down in black and white what has made Kerry the greatest football county in Ireland. What is it, year after year we see All Ireland titles in some grade come to the county. Minor, junior, under ... more
