Episode 1832: The Game That Changed My Life With Jamie Wall, PSG Predictions, Ken’s Not Nice
Jamie Wall was a top class trophy-winning underage hurler and footballer for Cork, when, in June 2014, what started as a pain in his back accelerated within days to a life-changing diagnosis.
He has since become a very successful young coach, leading Mary Immaculate College in Limerick to a Fitzgibbon Cup triumph against DJ Carey and his Carlow IT side, and now with his club side, Kilbrittain.
He is also one of the most interesting people currently working in Irish sport, and the latest guest on our new slot, The Game That Changed My Life.
We discuss sliding doors moments in underage sport, big county filter systems, watching friends make it to the top, how he has dealt with having to reset his life, and kicking that sweet sweet point in Croke Park.
Plus Ken gets introspective, Murph gets in Eoin’s good books, and the best Champions League prediction of all: GOALS.
Kylian Mbappe could feature for PSG on Wednesday.
