Episode 1355: It’s Our Feel-Good New Year’s Eve Special – Good Vibes With The Limerick Hurlers, And Ireland’s Hockey World Cup Legends!
Sometimes, after a long, tiring festive period, you might feel your energy levels flagging. So as you prepare for another big night of socialising, what you might need right about now is a solid dose of positive vibes, and feel-good stories.
So we present to you two of the best from the sporting year of 2018 for our New Year’s Eve show. Recorded live in front of a packed audience at the Liberty Hall Theatre, we speak to Limerick hurlers Kyle Hayes and Tom Morrissey, and Irish hockey heroes Nikki Evans and Chloe Watkins.
Limerick ended 45 years of hurt by winning this year’s All-Ireland senior hurling championship, and our two young guests reflect on going through life-changing events at 20, playing with no nerves… and being born the day after the 1998 World Cup final.
Ireland’s women’s hockey team weren’t chasing past glories, they were creating some history of their own by qualifying for a first ever World Cup final – and Nikki and Chloe tell us why you’re allowed have fun at these things too.
Plus there’s a reminder of how great this year’s hurling summer was, Ken’s managerial impressions, pre-match haircuts, and chilled out winners.

It’s independent, commercial-free and member-led with feature interviews, breaking news, Richie Sadlier’s Player’s Chair, The Politics Podcast, and lots of added extras.

Ken has had his problems with Jose’s reign at Old Trafford, but there’s no need for an “I told you so” as Ken humbly accepts victory in this clash of footballing titans
