For many, 1998 is still one of the best hurling championships of all time, not so much for what happened on the pitch, but for what happened off it. 20 years later, we relive one of the most dramatic years in the life of Irish Hurling, where the summers' games became our national soap opera.
Julien Clancy is a freelance radio producer who loves bringing the world into the studio and sharing it on-air with the listener.
In the past he's visited the Fukushima Nuclear Plant in Japan to make a programme about forgotten dogs, scaled 4 of Ireland's most iconic peaks and trawled through the Archives of the National Folklore Collection all in search of a great story.
Julien also likes sharing these stories with live audiences through a series of radio listening events called Sounds Alive which has its very first festival on September 5th/6th.
