Episode 1409: Ciara Mageean Medals, The Third Coming Of Tommy Walsh, Ken’s Dance With Death, Teenage Kicks
When Ciara Mageean sat down to record an episode of The Players Chair with Richie Sadlier last year, she was coping with changing coach, living in England, and trying to put disappointments behind her; that didn’t stop her baking Richie some delicious cakes. We’re delighted to catch up with her today to talk about her bronze in the European Indoors, a result that comes on the back of some smart decisions on and off the track.
Tommy Walsh is experiencing a third coming in the Kerry football team – 11 years after bursting onto the scene as a teenager, and 4 years after failing to make any impact on his return from Australia. It’s been one of the stories of the NFL this year, and his club manager Mike Quirke is on the line to tell us what’s changed.
