We finished last in all but one of the five criteria upon which the bids were assessed. Gerry Thornley is in studio to reflect on the key pieces missing from the bid, and whether even the Rugby World Cup is now too big a tournament for a country of our size to hold.

Jason Sherlock joins us to talk about the release of his autobiography ‘Jayo’, which tells the story of the one of the most amazing sporting lives this country has ever seen. From the starburst of 1995, to unheard-of sporting ecumenism and a career deemed a failure by himself, he talks us through it all.
Plus there’s homemade cookies for starving radio hosts, Katie Taylor’s next move, and Ireland buying itself a beautiful golden Ferrari.
