About The Show

So just who officially is Ireland's Greatest Non-Sportsperson Sportsperson? Eoin McDevitt, Ken Early and Ciaran Murphy break down the sporting backgrounds of some of the most-interesting people alive. Unimportant? Perhaps. Fun? Absolutely.

The critically-acclaimed Second Captains Saturday has featured names like Gabriel Byrne, Sharon Horgan, Lenny Abrahamson, Dorothy Cross, Dara O'Briain, Gabby Logan, Senator George Mitchell and so many more. Some have played sport internationally, others have avoided sport religiously.

Throw in a particularly harsh ranking system, lots of laughs and some brilliant alternative music, and you've found the best possible way to start your weekend. 

Welcome to Second Captains and welcome to Summer Saturdays on RTE Radio 1 at 10am.
