Irishman Running Abroad with Sonia O’Sullivan: “Myths VS Facts”

April 20, 2021
With so much conflicting information out there and so many vested interests, it’s hard to know what to believe about running. Today Sonia takes aim and busts a few of the myths that hold us back when it comes to running well. Jarlath has picked up an injury and opens up for the first time about the impact it is having on his training and life. Sonia offers some no nonsense advice and announces her plans to head Stateside in the lead up to the Olympic Games for a very exciting project. There’s also one of the most bizarre and hilarious emails of the week.

April 17, 2021

Horse racing legend Jessica Harrington sits down with Jarlath seven days on from Rachel Blackmore’s Grand National win to talk about her own remarkable journey. One of the very first female Irish racehorse trainers, Jessica has seen every side of the industry from the bitter disappointments to the glorious triumphs at the biggest events. How does she remain positive when the losses far outweigh the wins? Jarlath digs into her attachment to the animals, their welfare and her previous life representing Ireland at European, World and Olympic levels in three day eventing. Finally Jarlath asks Jessica about stereotypes about male and female horses, how they were extended to humans in the business and how they are gradually getting rolled back with each passing season. Whether you’re a racing fan or not there is something for everyone in this conversation with an Irish sporting pioneer.

Joe Molloy

Joe Molloy

April 10, 2021

This week, Newstalk's Off The Ball and Virgin Media's 6 Nations presenter Joe Molloy joined Jarlath for a rare long-form conversation about his life and career.

With a refreshing honesty, Joe outlines his mixed feelings over the 'tricky' infamous Roy Keane interview which "wasn't a good night" for him, the overwhelm he felt in Newstalk after the sudden departure of the Second Captains team and his thoughts on how social media has turned angry in recent years.

From the beautiful story of how he was headhunted for his Virgin Media role to the art of interviewing, turning to Enda McNulty for help and much more, this is a fascinating conversation with one of Ireland's top sports broadcasters.

Irishman Running Abroad with Sonia O’Sullivan: “Bounce Back: The Ancient Art Of Getting Back On The Horse”

April 5, 2021
Ireland’s greatest athlete gives us a masterclass in how to respond to setbacks, failures and unforeseen problems. After a week where Sonia asked all our listeners to see how high they could climb, a month when Ireland has struggled to see light in the darkness and a year when everyone has been forced to dig deep, there really has never been a better time to talk about resilience. Jarlath goes deep into Sonia’s Olympic past to find out how she learned to respond during her darkest moments and why speed was the key. There’s a review of the leaderboard, a new book club selection, email of the week from another Cóbh native and discussion of dogs on nudist beaches

Kevin Barry: Embracing Mistakes & Running With Them

Kevin Barry: Embracing Mistakes & Running With Them

April 3, 2021
This week, award-winning writer Kevin Barry joined Jarlath for a fascinating conversation about writing and the mystery of the creative process.
 
Kevin speaks about the deal fiction writers make with their subconscious mind, the importance of embracing failure, trusting the gut and reveals the book he regards as his "awkward child".
 
This chat is full of the classic Irish observations you’d expect from Kevin and few strange revelations such as his early attempts to write after returning home from a heavy night out to his admission that he couldn’t ride a bike until he was 15. This conversation is the perfect antidote to the bleakness we have all gotten used to this past month. Irishman Abroad brings you more light next Friday with Harry Hill joining our online comedy show in aid of frontline workers. Go to www.returnofthecraic.com to reserve your stream and see the rest of the stellar lineup.

An Irishman In America with Marion McKeone (The Trial Of Derek Chavin: Ireland vs Biden, Allen vs Farrow): (Trailer)

April 2, 2021
Marion leads us through the opening days of the Derek Chauvin trial and it’s deeper impact on the American psyche. Police brutality and deaths in custody will come into sharp focus over the coming weeks. Marion eyes another scandal building on the horizon as Congressman Matt Gaetz, one of Trumps biggest far right cheerleaders, is under investigation for sex trafficking. A long time rumour around Washington media circles, there are significant implications in the weeks to come. Jarlath asks if Biden’s plan to fuel his infrastructure bill by taxing American companies abroad will affect his romance with Ireland. We finish this episode with a documentary recommendation and review of one of the most talked about scandals in the history of modern America. Allen vs Farrow from HBO is now playing on Sky Documentaries. Jarlath and Marion examine the four episodes and the grotesque manner in which Hollywood enabled Allen and silenced his victim. Finally Jarlath looks ahead to Sunday’s episode with the brilliant Irish author Kevin Barry. 
 
If you have a question for Marion please send it through to irishmanabroadpodcast@gmail.com and Jarlath will do his best to include it in the next episode.

Together with Jarlath she tries to provide some simple no nonsense solutions and guides to help with whatever ails you.
