With 17 Senior All-Irelands, 11 in football and 6 in camogie, Briege Corkery is one of the greatest GAA players of all time.

However, after giving so much to the Cork cause over the years, Briege decided to focus on other areas of life in 2017. She spoke about that decision on the podcast, whether she intends to return to the Cork fold next season, why the fear of losing drives her on more than the joy of winning and the danger of presuming that sports stars are automatically confident and out going people.

We hope you enjoy getting such a detailed insight into the mind of one of Ireland’s most prominent sporting role models.
