Episode 1656: It’s a Saint Stephen (Kenny) Day Special
If it’s St Stephen’s Day, then it simply must be time to play our brilliant interview with Stephen Kenny, our current Ireland u-21 manager, soon to be our next senior manager.
Stephen spoke to us in front of a packed house at our final Liberty Hall live show earlier in the month, and this is one not to be missed, as his passion for his current job – and his next one – shine through in every answer.
We discuss his advice to young players, why loan deals can be a poisoned chalice, why you shouldn’t be punished for being an Irishman, his commitment to his attacking philosophy, and how the u-21s performances have been a rare bright spot for Irish football this year.
As ever, our stuff from the live shows comes courtesy of O’Hara’s Brewery in Co Carlow – and there’s also Die Hard, yoga, and shirtless Murph, live from the Second Captains log cabin.
Click the image at the top of the page to play the show. Monday’s shows are free to all – to listen to our programming throughout the rest of the week, join the Second Captains World Service. 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.
Just hours after the FAI revealed the true scale of the financial crisis the organisation is facing on Friday, we spoke to @RichieSadlier and the journalist who brought about John Delaney's downfall @marktigheST at Liberty Hall Theatre

Why did the simple Tory messaging cut through? Was there ever a path to success for Labour? And what might the outcome mean for Scotland and Northern Ireland?https://t.co/as9bIxds5K pic.twitter.com/5k0VVh3sMa
