Marty O’Brien


WIN­TON born Marty O’Brien gets around north Queens­land in a trusty Isuzu Sitec 200 as part of a four mem­ber gang work­ing for Townsville based D&A Car­pen­try.

Big Rigs saw them have a lunch break in late De­cem­ber at Cutheringa Park in West End sub­urb with the Isuzu parked out­side the home where they had been work­ing across the road.

“We do a lot of work around Townsville and do also get south to Proser­pine and Air­lie Beach,” he said.

The 41-year-old Marty pre­vi­ously played rugby league foot­ball for Wan­der­ers Club in Mt Isa and fol­lows the NRL.

“I also en­joy a cold drink on a hot day and it is more than 30 de­grees here now,” he said.

Marty said he likes meet­ing dif­fer­ent peo­ple on his trav­els and also was im­pressed when told one of his work­mates looks like Prince Harry.

Marty was look­ing for­ward to get­ting back to Win­ton to see fam­ily and friends.
