About this episode

There is no doubt that success playing Ireland’s famous game has helped Brendan become very comfortable in his own skin but during our chat we spoke about how his formative years were spent living in a Tipperary hurling bubble and how his identity and lifestyle were, at times, consumed by his overriding passion to wear the blue and gold.

Among other things, we talked about what it was like to win a senior and u21 All-Ireland within six days, how working with autistic children challenged his outlook on life, the pressures and responsibilities of a captain in a modern GAA dressing room and why he felt the decision to replace him as captain for the 2017 season was the right one.

This is the second episode of a ten part series highlighting that GAA players are far more than just footballers and hurlers and you can listen to it on iTunes, SoundCloud or Stitcher. Listen to episode one feature Dublin’s Kevin McManamon here.
