Talking Sport: Reflecting on a glorious weekend for The Harps and Clough-Ballacolla following hurling glory

After a huge weekend of club action, we’ve split up our Talking Sport Podcast into two parts – hurling and football.

This episode focuses solely on hurling as Damien Carter joins Steven Miller and Alan Hartnett to reflect on it all.

First, the lads discuss the 2020 Laois SHC final between Clough-Ballacolla and Borris-Kilcotton which took place on Saturday evening.

Clough-Ballacolla won their first Laois SHC title since 2015 as the excellence of Stephen Maher and Robbie Phelan fired them to glory.

Maher scored 13 points while Phelan ended with 1-3 as Clough-Ballacolla ran out five point winners.

The lads reflect on a brilliant performance and examine where the game was won.

They then turn their attentions back to Friday evening where The Harps made history against Portlaoise.

Not since Durrow won the intermediate title in 1976 has a main team from the parish won a hurling championship title, making it the longest any club in the county has gone without serious silverware.

While they’ve won plenty of league titles, underage and junior grades – as well as a selection of camogie and football championships – their main hurling team has endured serious heartache since the Durrow and Cullohill clubs came together in 1984.

The lads manage to conclude their chat just in time for the latest episode of Love Island too.

You can listen to the episode in full below on Soundcloud or by subscribing on Apple Podcasts or Spotify.
