Episode 1725: Jack McCaffrey On The Battle Against COVID 19, Ken On UEFA Postponing The Euros… And We Announce Our New World Service Podcast!
Jack McCaffrey is one of Ireland’s most decorated sportspeople, and one of the best footballers of the last 30 years. But he’s also a doctor, and he’s experiencing life on the front lines of the HSE’s battle to minimise the impact of COVID 19 on the country.
Dublin GAA asked Dr Jack McCaffrey to help share the @HSELive message to help protect yourself, your family, your teammates and your community. We ALL need to play our part to help stop the spread of coronavirus. #COVID?19 pic.twitter.com/hqetSksRUV

He joins us this morning to talk about how he’s found the last week, the steps that we can all take to prevent further spread, how to protect your own mental and physical health and what to do if you’re symptomatic.
Everyone else seems to be scaling back, but now sees like a good time to start *increasing* your intake of podcasts – David O’Doherty (!!!) joins us from a top-secret location to tell us about his new show with us here on the World Service.
Plus there’s Ken on UEFA’s decision to postpone Euro 2020, j’adore Inchicore, and opening the Tutankhamun’s tomb that is Mick McCarthy’s FAI contract.
Play-offs down for June. FAI headache becomes a migraine if Mick McCarthy – whose contract expires in July – achieves qualification. https://t.co/zAQBTCHuZN
