An Irishman Abroad

Cora Staunton: Episode 295

May 11, 2019

Jarlath meets Cora Staunton during one of the most tumultuous weeks of her life.  In a wide ranging conversation, Cora explains the pressure of being recognised as a local public figure from a young age (8:00), the reaction to loss that defined her personality (52:00) and the core belief that will no doubt help her along the road to recovery  (50:00).

From revealing the one regret that she has from moving to Australia (39:00) to the key to her success (1:04:00) and her frank opinions on the topic of compensation players in the GAA (Patreon Full Length Version Only), this is a one of a kind conversation with one of Ireland’s greatest sportswomen.
