Meath are on top of the football world as they celebrate their second women’s All Ireland title in two years, go back to the future with the appointment of Colm O’Rourke, and now there’s even talk of the magic man joining the backroom team.

10-time winner Valerie Mulcahy and the Irish Independent’s Colm Keys join us to talk about how dominant the last 12 months have been for the women’s team, and how they’re fixed to handle disruption to their panel over the coming months as Vikki Wall and Orlagh Lally go to the AFLW.

We also discuss Colm O’Rourke’s ascension to the top job in men’s football, and how he could well be raiding Eamonn Murray’s successful backroom staff.

Plus there’s Shane Walsh’s move to Kilmacud Crokes from his home club in Galway, Ken on the GAA’s secret sauce, and our emailers have their say on hurling men bigging up their chosen sport at every opportunity, and the definition of a world-class athlete – does David Clifford qualify?
