Episode 1092: The Player’s Chair With Nicole Owens
After losing three All Ireland finals in a row, the Dublin ladies team got over the line in emphatic style last September, blowing Mayo away in front of a record crowd of 46,286.
Wing-forward Nicole Owens was one of the stars of their all-conquering year, and finished 2017 as an All-Star, rounding off an extraordinary journey of self-improvement.
In this episode of the Players Chair, Richie talks to Nicole about her mental health struggles and how they impacted on her game, she opens up about her sexuality, being followed by a documentary film crew for a year, and how honesty with her manager got the best out of her.
As a sports fan,I really enjoyed #BlueSisters Star of the show for me was Nicole Owens for sharing her experience of depression & highlighting the value of sport in our lives
