Trail launch honours leg­endary writer

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - - News -

THE mem­ory of Con Houli­han, who of­ten wrote for the Sun­day In­de­pen­dent, Sun­day World and Her­ald, was cel­e­brated last week­end in his na­tive Cas­tle Is­land with the launch of the Con Houli­han Trail, which con­sists of 14 wall-mounted plaques at key points round the town.

In­cluded on each plaque is a cho­sen quo­ta­tion from one of Ire­land’s great­est ever sports jour­nal­ists, who also wrote about art, the­atre and lit­er­a­ture.

The Con Houli­han Trail is a fit­ting trib­ute to the leg­endary Kerry writer, who died on Au­gust 4, 2012.
