This Sunday's Game: Bloody Sunday Centenary Special with Michael Foley pt. 1

Podcast cover
Read more
We've gone to games since childhood, never thinking the unthinkable, that we might never return home. 100 years ago, on the 21st of November, 14 people went to watch a challenge match between Dublin and Tipperary at Croke Park. They never made it home.

Gaelic Games Europe and This Sunday's Game have produced a special 2 part series of shows with award-winning author and Sunday Times GAA Writer Michael Foley.

Michael, as well as being one of the leading GAA writers of our age, has also worked to lay to rest those for whom history had forgotten. In this show he talks about how he found himself, in 2007, asking just what happened that fateful day in 1920 and how it led him to standing beside a child's graveside, delivering a eulogy.

This Sunday's Game: Playing Fair with David Gough Part 2

Podcast cover
Read more
In this second of our 2 part special with All-Ireland referee David Gough, we ask the question - Are we doing enough to make our organisation more inclusive - to combat discrimination and ensuring that from dressing room to pitch to stands, we are all one family?

While we can all pat ourselves on the back and thing we're all doing great, just how is the GAA for LGBT and minorities? Do people in rural areas feel comfortable living the lives they wish?

David continues to fight for inclusiveness and discusses one excellent project in Irish schools that just might be a game changer. And on a personal level, what else is left for a referee when they've reffed the biggest game of them all? Is there a referee's union? And do referees watch matches or other referees?

He explains how there is no "warning" system in the rulebook, that supporters need to know this is our community and that we need to make sure we remember that we all belong.

David has been a great friend of the GAA in Europe and continues to support refereeing initiatives in our region. And as we mention at the top of the show, sure he's almost from Louth so we can let him away with being from Meath!
