Michael Corcoran

RTÉ Radio rugby commentator Michael Corcoran first toured with the Irish rugby team in 2000, when they travelled to Argentina, USA and Canada.  Michael Corcoran began his broadcasting career with RTÉ Radio Cork. Munster's Heineken Cup victory in May 2006 was the 99th game he commentated on in the competition.

Listen here to three pieces of Michael Corcoran commentary, two from 2006 and one from 2009. The first is when Ireland win the Triple Crown for the second time in three years and the second is when Munster finally win the Heineken Cup. The third clip is of a passionate commentary by Corcoran as Ireland win the first Grand Slam since 1948.

The accompanying image shows RTÉ broadcaster Michael Corcoran in July 2000. The photograph was taken by Thomas Holton.
