Episode 966: Staunton The Sorcerer, Sean O’Brien Starts The Season, Dave Hannigan’s “Boy Wonder”
Whoever ends up winning this Sunday’s All-Ireland senior ladies football final in Croke Park will be a hell of a story – if it’s Mayo, it will be a fifth All-Ireland title for the greatest player the game has ever seen, Cora Staunton, a full 14 years after her last title.

If Dublin get over the line, it will be redemption after losses in the last 3 finals in a row. To add a little extra spice, there’s even been a war of words in the build up – we talk to Valerie Mulcahy, former Cork legend and winner of 10 All-Ireland medals.
