Episode 1415: Ireland Learn And Win, Ken Burley Update, What Needs To Happen To Women’s Sport In The GAA

Eoin Reddan joins Gerry Thornley to figure out what changed in the intervening weeks, what tactical issues were resolved, and what role high 5’s and bro hugs played in the turnaround.
Aoife Lane, founder and former chairperson of the WGPA wrote a brilliant column in the Irish Examiner about why ladies football and camogie are run by separate organisations set aside from the GAA, despite the many and obvious ways in which the games co-exist together with Gaelic football and hurling – and she joins us for a chat.
