Episode 2461: We’re Going To The World Cup
Irish people don’t get to imagine, let alone say, these words very often – we’re going to the World Cup!
The goal, the composure, the defensive defiance, the long throws, the interviews, the celebrations – we gleefully reflect on all the moments that made this one of the great nights in Irish sport.
Ken met up with the team today and had an interesting chat with a very happy Vera Pauw.
We discuss Amber Barrett’s thoughtful, intelligent, heartfelt words for those impacted by the tragedy in Creeslough.
Former Ireland player Karen Duggan and Gavin Cooney of The 42 join us to discuss how far this team has come and what a massive deal going to a World Cup will be.
Ireland. World Cup Qualified.
No words left. Only (happy) tears.
Incredible. Incredible. Incredible.
I love these girls and this country.#coygig ?? https://t.co/U0qM4Vjnii

Plus there’s toe pokes, time wasting, the art of defending and Mark Horgan smelts all the goodness into an audio montage.
