Talking Sport Podcast: James Finn, Darren Strong and Portarlington shock Portlaoise

It was another busy weekend of championship action and our Talking Sport Podcast is a bumper edition with two special guests and looks back on eight senior, four intermediate and a handful of junior games for good measure.

Former Laois footballers Darren Strong and James Finn join us on the line to chat about the good wins for Emo and Ballyfin respectively.

Strong – who is again being managed by his father John – chats about how Emo are benefitting from the introduction of a couple of new players.

And he also explains how his business DS Sports managed to navigate their way through lockdown and how he’s not just focusing on sportswear but the school uniform market now too.

Finn chats about Ballyfin’s journey from being a junior team to a consistent senior side and what it’s like playing hurling and football week in, week out.

Steven Miller and Alan Hartnett discuss the big result of the weekend and wonder can this be Portarlington’s year? Or are Portlaoise only experiencing a temporary dip?

And they chat about all the other games too and pick their man of the match from each of the eight senior games.

Plus, Alan on what it’s like behind the scenes with Laois TV and Steven’s moan of the week on why he has no time for the water breaks.
