An Irishman Abroad

Barry Glendenning: Episode 23

February 24, 2014

Barry Glendenning's story of moving abroad to pursue a career as a stand up comic before settling as a deputy sports editor with a major newspaper is an intriguing one. In this episode, Barry talks about how he got his big break into journalism by reviewing the Pope's mass as though it were a rock concert, being frog-marched to perform his first stand up gig which soon led to him competing against Peter Kay, his opinion on the new Ireland managerial setup and why he remains against technology in sport.
