Tom McKenna

McCann’s Irish Oatmeal, Mike Haggerty Buick/GMC/Volkswagen and Personal Injury Attorney Caroleann Gallagher present The Hibernian Radio Hour and Houli is back from Ireland to host another great show! Our first guest this week is “Chicago’s Funniest Cop”, Tom ‘Crash’ McKenna. Tom is a 34 year retired veteran of the CPD where he worked as a Major Accident Investigator. He grew up in St. Rita’s Parish and attended St. Rita’s High School, followed by Northwestern University. He is a longtime member of the Bagpipes and Drums of The Emerald Society and The Shannon Rovers. Tom talks about his family, shares some stories from his time on the force and gives us an insight to his life as a stand-up comedian. This guy is a hoot! Our second surprise guest is Bob Fioretti, Former Alderman of the 2nd Ward. Bob is a Southside native lawyer who is considering running for State’s Attorney next year. He wastes no time in diving into the political talk with Houli, sharing his opinion on the city’s safety issues and the most recent budget.  Houli covers this week’s local Irish American news and brings us up to date on the Obits. We take a quick trip to Houli-town to close out this week’s show!
