Next week marks the tenth anniversary of a tragedy that shook the GAA and the wider sports community to its foundations. In March 2004, Cormac McAnallen - captain of All-Ireland football champions Tyrone - died suddenly in his sleep. Aged just 24, he had achieved a phenomenal amount in his brief life. Since that day, Cormac’s family have worked to keep his memory alive and to raise awareness of the condition that took him away from them. Sean was joined in studio by Cormac’s parents Bridget and Brendan McAnallen and on the phone by Cormac’s brother Donal.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0227/506910-today-with-sean-o-rourke-thursday-27-february-2014/?clipid=1427306
