    The Wild Geese - Underdogs

    Yesterday in Croke Park, the battle was between Mayo & Tyrone - but at the same time and not too far from Croke Park, another team was battling for a place in a semi-final & that was our brave Underdogs, The Wild Geese from Oldtown in North Dublin play their hurling in Division Nine and yesterday they faced Réalt Dearg.  The Wild Geese had a visit recently from Clare manager Davy Fitzgerald... but would Davy’s no-nonsense approach have an effect? Aidan Lenehan of the Wild Geese joins Kathryn on the line.

    Listen

    Book 'Unbored'

    You might recall a few weeks ago we decided to take on that annual mantra 'Im Bored' from our school children countrywide. We asked listeners to let us know why they should have a chance to 'road-test' a new book called Unbored.  Kathryn is joined in our Cork studio by Carmel Shortiss & her teenage children Emer & Eoghan.  On the line we have 13 year old Constance McMorrow, who recently had a heart transplant & her mother Fina.
