Ireland play Northern Ireland in the Aviva this week, and since it’s a friendly we will be greeted with the sight of Glenn Whelan on his international swan-song, and perhaps Michael Obafemi, who is still apparently unsure as to whether he can commit his international future to us. Or is he sure? Ken Reports!!

Ken was in Abbotstown for Martin O’Neill’s press conference today and he gives his views on what we can do to avoid yet another round of ‘will he-won’t he’ with a talented young footballer.

James Weldon has just been named as head coach of the Irish women’s basketball national team, but he also spent 2018 working in Eamon Fitzmaurice’s Kerry football back-room team, and he’s in studio to talk to us about how basketball is now influencing Gaelic football at every level and what rule changes in basketball could also help make football more entertaining.

Plus there’s Ken’s UFO update, All Blacks in a pub, idiots in a basketball stadium and VR with Mike Summerbee.
