Declan Rice’s statement distancing himself from the IRA on the eve of his England international debut has prompted gales of laughter from pretty much all sides, but it’s been a strange week for the curious strand of republicanism espoused by the likes of the Wolfe Tones. Ken shares his thoughts and gives the latest “Delaney Daily” (4.10 mins).

Floyd Landis is back in cycling as a team owner, and it seems that his return has been broadly welcomed. How are these rehabilitations into the sport handled – what makes Floyd an ideal candidate to own a team, while Lance Armstrong is still banned for life from cycling?

We talk to Cillian Kelly (21.40 mins) of the Velocast – This Week In Cycling podcast about why dopers are often treated harshly or not based on their personality rather than their misdemeanours, Paul Kimmage’s admiration for Floyd, and the slightly-less-than-spectacular Team Sky rebrand.

Plus there’s the Brexit gags man (00.20 secs) Eoin’s Poemz (54.00 mins), Frances Murphy takes on the neo-Nazis, and The Murphy Derby.
