Episode 970: Frank Murphy’s Elephant, Israel Folau And Australia’s Same-Sex Marriage Debate, Administrator Of The Week
Frank Murphy has served as many things in the Cork GAA County Board over the last 45 YEARS, but regardless of the job title, he has been the Don. No county administrator has ever so completely entered the national consciousness, but his reign at the top is to end later this year, it was announced last night.
Michael Foley of the Sunday Times joins us on the line to talk about hurling strikes, building two versions of Pairc Ui Chaoimh, and Donal Og Cusack’s chances of succeeding him.
Israel Folau, Australia’s AFL, rugby league and rugby union superstar, made waves a couple of weeks back by announcing that, as his country was engaged in a poll on the subject, he was against same-sex marriage. Rohan Connolly, editor of footyology and friend of the show, joins us to talk about what impact that announcement has had on public opinion.
I love and respect all people for who they are and their opinions. but personally, I will not support gay marriage.???
