With the Shane Walsh to Kilmacud Crokes story rumbling on we discuss the GAA’s relationship with community, family, loyalty, work life balance, rules, commutes, the rural urban divide, self improvement…. and logic.

We get two of the sharpest minds in the GAA, Paul Flynn and Jamie Wall, to examine perception and reality with super clubs, why Kilmacud Crokes will improve even a player as good as Shane Walsh, the unintended consequences of a split season and why top players can’t just switch off their competitive mindset.

Plus there’s Ken’s review of All Or Nothing: Arsenal, St Pats’ party on in Europe, Rovers and their pals the evil Irish government, and we get a Frances Murphy world exclusive.
