Episode 1716: The Boys In Green, Big Jack and L’il McDevitt, Second Captains Rub Shoulders With Fellow Z-Listers, Frances Murphy On Royal Hurlin’
Eoin McDevitt met Jack Charlton in 2005, at the start of a stellar broadcasting career, and it’s fair to say he’s learnt quite a bit in the intervening years. We take an audio walk down memory lane to hear the young McDevitt in action, as part of a nostalgia-laden Friday episode on the world service.
“The Boys In Green” is a new documentary mini-series directed by friend of the show Ross Whitaker, who has of course directed “Katie”, and the Shane Lowry documentary, and he tells us about what he learned about Ireland in the late ’80s to mid ’90s, and if being the opposite to England still defines us.
Sound mixing THE BOYS IN GREEN at the moment. Looking forward to its debut on @RTEOne next Monday night. Great working with the team @LoosehorseSport and @RTE on the series. Aldo steals the show! pic.twitter.com/MzxlxzZsab

Eoin and Murph were rubbing shoulders with the Dublin glitterati last night, and the 3am boys breathlessly report back from the red carpet. Plus there’s fish and chips, John Aldridge as Bruce Lee, self-abasement in Galway, the onion knight, and a severely sleep-deprived Eoin.
