Legendary Kildare sports journalist, Tommy O'Callaghan, is celebrating 50 years on the beat.
The Naas native began working as an apprentice compositor in the Leinster Leader in 1967 as a 16 year old.
He moved in to sports journalism and has been widely praised by the stalwarts of football, hurling, soccer, rugby, racing in Kildare and beyond for his contributions over the span of five decades.
He was Shane Beatty's guest on Kildare Today, in an interview which also featured tributes by Kfm CEO, Clem Ryan, and Leinster Leader New Editor, Laura Coates.
