Listen to Liam Daly in conversation with Hugh Foley

The past year has been difficult for everyone, and the world of amateur sport has unfortunately been put on hold. Many of us have felt bereft losing our favourite past times – something that is hugely important for both physical and mental health.

For those battling tooth and nail to make their sport a source of income, the prolonged wait has been a huge blow.
