GAA Social on a Monday. We're ready for Armagh and Tyrone. Monday review
The GAA Social with Oisin McConville & Thomas Niblock- Dublin won't win Sam
Kevin Hughes. Football, loss, death, Tyrone. The most powerful GAA Social yet. Darragh O'Se & Kerry, Mickey Harte winning Sam
Kevin Hughes lost his sister Helen and brother Paul in two separate car accidents. He was on the pitch when Paul McGirr died representing Tyrone in an Ulster championship match. Cormac McAnallen was his captain and friend. It's a life of loss- but remarkably Kevin has found a way to survive, grow and cope. He was Man-of-the-match in the historic All-Ireland final of 2003 when Tyrone won their first All-Ireland.
This is a story of loss, resolve, laughter and pain. Kevin Hughes is one of the most remarkable people we've ever come across.
It's also 20 years since Tyrone won their first All-Ireland. Oisin & Kevin battled it out in Croke Park that September day, the podcast sparks some terrific memories (some bad ones for Oisin)
The GAA Social- the brilliant Kevin Hughes
All-Ireland preview/review- Tailteann cup. Hurling King once again & Oisin knows who will win Sam Maguire. Donegal of old?
It's the GAA Social on a Monday, Oisin and Thomas review the GAA action over the weekend and preview what's to come. It's also time to reflect on the recent impact of the podcast series in the immediacy of recording, perhaps, our most powerful yet. (We know we have said that before)
Down footballers enjoyed Thurles- on the pitch and slightly off it too?
The GAA Social Extra- we hope you enjoy
Francie Bellew in his only ever sit-down interview. Nothing off-limits
We don't know how exactly it happened- but it has.
Armagh legend Francie Bellew agreed to sit down and take part in his first and only sit-down interview. In a wide ranging conversation we dig into being shy, how he was bundled into a car and brought to Armagh training and his memories of playing in Orange. He's not a fan of modern day football, he hasn't been back at Clones since he retired but his kids are opening the lid on football again. He reveals his toughest ever opponent, battles with Tyrone and how he was tricked!
It's not all memories and smiles. The controversial Mickey Linden challenge is debated. Mayobridge played Crossmaglen in the Ulster club final in 2014 and Linden lost two front teeth. He was removed from the field after 14 minutes. Francie reveals they've never talked since. Maybe they will?
Francie explains his cult status and although he struggles to understand it- he is aware it’s a thing in GAA circles.
Quick, witty and surprisingly frank. It’s the GAA Social with All-Ireland winner Francie Bellew
