Oisin McConville: Episode 136


This week we hear the incredible story of one man’s journey to hell and back with a serious gambling addiction which saw him in a crippling six-figure financial debt while at the same time being one of the most prolific Gaelic footballers in the country. 

Oisin McConville joined Jarlath this week as a trained addiction councillor to discuss his life growing up in Crossmaglen in the midst of the troubles, what the real cause of his gambling addiction was, becoming a compulsive liar and how his own life decisions caused him to become a risk to both himself and his own family.
