Now in her 23rd season at the top level, it is a real honour and privilege to welcome Cora Staunton onto the Real Talks podcast.

Having made her debut for the Mayo senior team at 13 years of age, Cora has gone on to win four All-Ireland’s for her county, 10 All-Stars and become a household name due to her incredible longevity, mesmerising talent and amazing ability to consistently get huge scores in the green and red jersey.

Over the hour, Cora talked openly and honestly about how sport changed her life for the better, the impact of the death of her mother had on her life and why after all these years, she keeps coming back for more.
