Episode 2775: Maguire And Onana Rescue Man Utd, Whistleblower And The First Female League Of Ireland CEO Ciara McCormack, Stretford Murph
Murph was with his brethren in the Stretford End to witness Harry Maguire and Andre Onana rescue Manchester United’s chances in the Champions League. He reports on the match, the mood and the very fine fixtures and fittings.
Then we are joined by Ciara McCormack, the Canadian-born former Ireland international who this month became the first female CEO of a League of Ireland club at Treaty United.
Ciara tells us about her part in exposing an abuse scandal in Canadian football, how she feels the governing bodies of world sport continue to drag their heels on reform, and why she persuaded a Canadian investment fund to buy a club in the League of Ireland.
