    Richard Sadlier

    Last Sunday was a reminder of the wonderful spectacle of sport as Dublin beat Kerry in the all- Ireland semi final in a thrilling encounter that is being touted as the game of the decade . A few miles from Croke Park across the city lies St Patricks Institution & two Sundays ago another game was played within its high walls topped with barbed wire where ex professional footballer Richie Sadlier came out of retirement to put on his boots not to play but to referee the game. Richard joins Miriam in studio.
