An Irishman Abroad

Grainne Parker and Dominic Munnelly: Episode 259

August 31, 2018

Jarlath meets nutritionist Grainne Parker and her husband the game changing trainer and coach Dominic Munnelly to discuss his own personal struggle to get healthy. Grainne and Dominic have changed the conversation about fitness and well-being in Ireland and try to do the same for Jarlath. They open up about how tragedy brought them together and fatigue with the industry drove them to create their new book ‘Move, Train Nourish.’

The book has become a best-seller and helped thousands of people to reject the old understanding of health and fitness in favour of a more rounded view. From overcoming negative self-talk to why we’re unhealthier than ever and how emotional wellbeing should be a vital part of personal training, this episode is a must-listen for anyone who has ever struggled with their own relationship with their body, relationships and healthy living. For more information on the book, Dominic and Grainne just go to
