Chapter 14: Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh, What’s the Story?

00:0000:00

This week Danny & Rocco (AKA Mero) sat down with an Irish legend. Micheál O'Muircheartaigh has been broadcasting in Ireland since 1949. 

The two lads sat down with Micheál and heard all about his time growing up in Kerry, the history of Gaelic Games, stories across seven decades of sport from golf legend Peter Allis to the greatest hurler of all time Christy Ring. From Henry Shefflin to the great Dublin Kerry rivalry of years gone by. 
It's not often the two lads are stuck for words but in the presence of greatness, and with a man who loves Ireland as much as Ireland loves him, you sit forward and listen to every word. In his unmistakable Kerry accent, Micheál kept millions of people company on Sunday afternoons and shared in some of the greatest moments of Irish sport ever witnessed, this week, he shared that with What's the Story Podcast.

Chapter 13: Steve Gunn & Mark Barry, What’s the Story?

00:0000:00

This week on What's the Story we take a little trip to one of Ireland's most famous places, Carrigstown, as we get an inside look at a basketball rivalry that makes The Chicago Bulls v The New York Knicks look like a tea party. 

The Ballybrack Bulls v The Carrigstown Condors. 
 
We're joined by RTE's Fair City star Steve Gunn (Dan Keating of The Condors) who tells us about life on both sides of the camera and his days before landing his gig with the award winning serial drama. From taxi driving to busking, selling cash registers to working in a German circus, there's not a lot Steve hasn't tried - including tap dancing. 
We also had Irish Wheelchair Association Sport Development Officer, Mark Barry, along with us to tell us about the storyline on Fair City which involves Steve and of course our very own Graham Merrigan. Mark dishes the dirt on Mero and also tells us about his own journey from competing at the Barcelona 92 Paralympic Games to going on a J1 to Alaska and everything in between. 
As usual the lads discuss everything and anything including smelly Glasgow Celtic fans, the Rugby World Cup, Robert Durst The Jinx and loads more besides.

Chapter 12: What’s the Story with The Junior Takeover

00:0000:00

A special edition of What's the Story? this week as Danny & Mero head to the heart of Dublin, Ballybrack, to witness the newest generation of ass kicking kids at the very first Junior Takeover Muay Thai event. 

The two lads had chats with a host of kids and fighters including Evan, Ella, Tom and Maia from Warriors Gym in Dublin. Zoe, Daniel and John Walsh from Waterford Muay Thai, Aaron and Liam who only found out they were fighting each other when they sat down together with us, Shane and Shane from Celtic K1 and of course, friend of the show and the man behind the event, Cian Cowley. 
It was a great day which had everything from kids in their first fight to teenagers who are nearly veterans. Danny got called out by one of the kids and had to leave with a security escort, Mero is currently working on his spinning back fist technique and we learned that Disney Land in Florida is haunted... at least according to one of the kids. 
Big thanks to everyone involved on the day, especially Mark Merrigan who was our producer, runner, organiser, security, life coach and spotter.

Danny seems to hate the world and everything in it, especially do gooders on Facebook, overbearing parents on Facebook, and begrudgery... in general, not just on the Facebook. 
Mero loves everyone and everything, except Lindsey's baking. To counter Danny being in a sulk, Mero tries to be upbeat and loving life. 
Lindsey reveals her hippy side and takes the abuse from the lads over her baking skills like a pro. 
All of this and, we talk the serious situation in Syria, defending/bating Bono,  Danny receives the scariest message of his life, the Bloggies 2015 and our BIG competition winner is revealed.
