Electric Ireland has released the fourth episode of its new podcast ‘GAA Minor Moments’, featuring former Clare hurler and four-time All-Star, Jamesie O’Connor, as he takes a look back at his unique hurling career.
It is well-timed with excitement rising in the banner ahead of the weekend Munster Hurling Final against Limerick.
In this week’s episode, O’Connor speaks about his hurling apprenticeship in St. Flannan’s, getting a taste of the big days and winning a Munster Minor Hurling Championship with Clare in 1989.
He would go on to have success as a senior player winning All-Ireland titles with Club and County.
He shares some insight into his relationship with his former coaches, Eamonn O’Shea and Ger Loughnane. Describing how much respect he had for both, he details the invaluable lessons which he learned from two very different hurling innovators.
Electric Ireland’s ‘GAA Minor Moments’ Podcast will air every Tuesday as well-known Irish stars share memories from their early sporting careers, reflecting on the defining moments from playing Minor and how it shaped them, both on and off the pitch.
The podcast will run for ten weeks over the course of the Electric Ireland GAA Minor Championship, featuring a new guest each week from a star-studded lineup including Mick Galwey, Brian Whelahan, Conal Keaney and others as they reflect on their time spent playing Minor and shed light on some great personal stories.
