On this week’s podcast we’re going to hear from Ciarán O’Sullivan, captain of the Beara divisional side that won the 1997 county championship.

Ciarán has been chatting to Ger McCarthy about that incredible year which saw Beara lift the Andy Scannell cup following a replay victory over West Cork rivals Castlehaven.

The Beara '97 winning team will be honoured during halftime of Sunday’s Premier Senior football final between Nemo Rangers and the Barrs’ at Páirc Uí Chaoimh

Later in the show we’ll be chatting to Bandon AFC coach Áine O’Donovan.

Áine is a coach with Bandon AFC’s senior men’s team. She also coaches the younger generation in their school of excellence.

She’s been speaking to Dylan Mangan about the significance of the Ireland women’s team qualifying for next year’s World Cup in Australia & New Zealand and what it could mean for women’s soccer in West Cork and beyond.
