Mick Galwey on juggling an intercounty GAA career with international rugby, why he always loved playing the French and being the most dropped AND recalled player in Irish rugby history.

Paddy and Ruby sat down with Irish rugby legend, Mick Galwey, on today’s show.

“Gaillimh” as he is affectionately known, clearly had a talent for all sports from a young age. He showed flair on the GAA pitch, pulling on the Kerry jersey on a number of occasions, but he was best known in the blue of Shannon, the red of Munster and the green of Ireland.

He made his mark in the first wave of professional rugby and you get the impression from his chat with the lads that himself and his colleagues had plenty of fun in those early days of the game.

He speaks about his love for Kerry football, the atmosphere of playing in Lansdowne Road, the differences between Ronan O’Gara and Johnny Sexton and why there needs to be a little bit of fire put back into the bellies of the Irish squad ahead of the Six Nations.

It’s Ruby Walsh and Paddy Power in conversation with Mick Galwey and it’s coming to you straight “From The Horse’s Mouth”…
