On this week’s podcast we’re chatting to rising Irish MMA star Dee Begley from Bantry.

Begley picked up her first pro win at a recent Clan Wars Event in Belfast and she spoke to us about that fight, training SBG in Dublin with John Kavanagh and her ambitions to reach the UFC.

And in part-two we hear from Cork and Mourneabbey footballer Ciara O’Sullivan after Ephie Fitzgerald’s side booked their place in the league final with a win over Donegal last weekend.

But we start with rugby this week following the news that West Cork duo Gavin Coombes and Fineen Wycherly have been added to Andy Farrell’s Ireland squad for the upcoming summer internationals against Japan and the USA.


We're delighted to say that we have once teamed up with Access Credit Union for the months ahead on the Star Sport Podcast and what a couple of months we have in store.

Not only is the club action set to return but there’s also the small matter of the Munster and All Ireland inter-county championships and of course the Tokyo Olympics.

We’ll be covering all that great sport in-depth on the podcast and we couldn’t be happier about going on that journey with Access Credit Union.

Access Credit Union is well known for supporting local West Cork sport at all levels and we look forward to telling that story throughout the summer and beyond.

Access Credit Union - funding dreams for over 50 years.
