An Irishman Abroad

Jason Sherlock: Episode 221

December 9, 2017

Jason Sherlock is undoubtedly one of the biggest household names in Dublin’s sporting history. This week, Jason spoke openly to Jarlath about the racial abuse that he experienced from a manager (17:00), the hysteria that surrounded him at the age of 19 (24:00) and the battle with finding a sustainable model for professionalism in the GAA (39:00).

From his advice to the Mayo team (56:00), to how he was not going to the gym at the peak of his success (28:00), his thoughts on Dublin’s vulnerability this season (1:02:00), and much more, this is a fascinating conversation with a true Dublin sporting legend.
