Brian O’Driscoll: Episode 123



In the most anticipated episode of the series Brian O'Driscoll joins Jarlath for an open and brutally honest discussion about success, failure, personal strength, fame, self-doubt and of course Conor McGregor. Brian explains to Jarlath how rugby turned him into the man he is, why even a world champion isn't immune to a slump in confidence, how he overcame the toughest period of his career while also revealing what really happened between him and Paul Kimmage.


Brian also talks for the first time about a specific broadcaster whose lack of loyalty gave him vital fuel for his competitive fire, his lack of grudges, his thoughts on the current Irish squad and the tough pill he believes Munster will have to swallow.
