An Irishman Abroad

Donncha O’Callaghan and Peter Stringer (From The Patreon Archive) - Live from the Dublin Podcast Festival: Episode 324

July 31, 2020

This week, we are delighted to bring you one of the most hilarious and insightful episodes of the series to date. Ireland and Munster Rugby legends Donncha O'Callaghan and Peter Stringer joined Jarlath on stage for a special interview in front of a sold out Sugar Club at the Dublin Podcast Festival.

Donncha and Peter open up about the post-tournament analysis that was devastatingly brutal (28:00) while also giving a fascinating discussion on the evolution of rugby training (23:00), the truth behind 'Pants-Gate' (47:00) and why Paul Kimmage isn't wrong about his thoughts on doping in rugby (53:00).

From Donncha's side-splitting story about how he almost instinctively tackled a runner while out walking with his family (8:00) to the level of scrutiny that modern players are under (44:00) and who was responsible for the two lads being left circling a Cork roundabout (12:00) and much more, this is a rip-roaring and unforgettable conversation with two Irish rugby legends.

To hear the lads' honest thoughts on ROG's potential as future Ireland head coach, how they treated their bodies as their 'business' and much more, become a patron of An Irishman Abroad on
