About this episode

Eamon McGee was part of a renowned Donegal defence that brought Sam Maguire home to the hills of Donegal for the first time in 20 years.

However, while the team being transformed on the field, Eamon was also overseeing vital changes in his personal life.

During this week’s podcast, he talks about difficult spells in earlier years as he had to learn deal with anxiety, panic attacks, and a relationship with alcohol that resulted in him needing help and support.

Having hung up his boots last year, the Gweedore man is extremely proud of his career with Donegal, and while there may be some regrets, there is no doubt he is now better equipped to live and maintain a balanced lifestyle as he manages his transition into retirement.

It was amazing to hear Eamon McGee speak with such incredible honesty in relation to his own journey and there is no doubt that episode six is one to remember.
