Episode 2721: World Class Ciara Mageean, Jim McGuinness Haunts Dubs, Hannah Tyrrell’s Trifecta, Big Jack’s Pool Game
Ciara Mageean was close. Oh, so close. Last night in Budapest, in a stacked field, Mageean set a new Irish record of 3:56;61, finishing fourth in the 1,500m final. Tonight all eyes turn to Rhasidat Adeleke, in a race that has generated Sonia levels of interest and hope.
Taking their eyes off the track for just a split second Ken and Murph ponder what the return of Jim McGuinness means for not just the hills of Donegal but the sport of Gaelic Football as a whole.
We chat to the brilliant Hannah Tyrrell about Dublin’s All Ireland win, why it feels even bigger than her FAI Cup and Six Nations winners’ medals, seeking the flow state, and doing it all with her new born baby daughter Aoife watching on.
Plus there’s rugby’s bonkers bunkers, Big Jack’s pool game and more strife in the Spanish FA.
