O'Hehir, Michael (1920 - 1996)
RTÉ sports commentator Michael O'Hehir playing football with his 4-year-old daughter Ann, in the garden of their Dublin home in September 1964. A still from this shoot was used on the front cover of the RTV Guide of 25 September 1964 to publicise RTÉ's coverage of that year's Gaelic football All-Ireland final.
Michael O'Hehir started his career as a radio commentator in 1938. He was appointed RTÉ's first Head of Sports Programmes in 1961 at the establishment of Telefís Éireann, a position he held until 1972 when he returned to being a freelance journalist.
