On this week’s Terrace Talk, Eamonn Hickson is joined by James McCarthy to discuss the weekend’s Garvey’s SuperValu County Senior Hurling Championship Semi-Finals – Kilmoyley v Abbeydorney & Causeway v Ballyduff.

A parent from an underage side in the county is on the show talking about what happened at a recent U12 game where a referee acted in an abusive manner.

Kerry’s newest hurling club reaches their first major final – Tralee Parnell’s defeat Kilgarvan to reach the Intermediate Hurling Final. Chairperson, Dermot Reen, is on the show.

Eamonn chats about the Kerry Way Ultra – running through the weekend along the 195km Kerry Way, taking more than 23 hours. Eileen Daly, one of the organisers, Gavin Byrne, two-time winner (2018 and 2020) & Aoife Mundow, female winner who took 4.5 hours off previous winners are on the show.

Brendan Lawlor has become the first professional disability golfer to compete on the European Tour. He is currently fourth in the World Rankings for Golfers with Disability and chats to Eamonn about this achievement.

Kenmare lifted the Bishop Moynihan Cup in 1987, and going into 1988, Kenmare, Austin Stacks, Castleisland Desmonds and Dr Crokes were the most likely challenger – Not many expected it to be St Kieran’s.

Laura Grehan cycled from Slea Head to Wicklow, West to East across the country – why did she do it? She tells us on the show.

Tommy Hughes is also joining Eamonn. He clocked 16:47.59 for 5,000m to break the 28-year-old over-60 mark by 15 seconds.
