An Irishman Abroad

Mick Finnegan (Returns): Episode 292

April 20, 2019

It has been almost 5 years since Mick first joined Jarlath on An Irishman Abroad to tell his astonishing story of abuse, mental health struggles, failed suicide attempts and how he was saved by rugby coaching. To this date, it is unsurprising that that incredible conversation is one of the most popular episodes in our archive.

This week, Mick returns to the podcast to tell the powerful story of the journey that he has been on since his first meeting with Jarlath and how it is truly miraculous that he is still here to tell the tale. 

In the first half of this episode you can hear Mick's first conversation with Jarlath in full before this week's interview begins (1:19:00).
