We chat about what this pandemic likely means financially & politically, locally & internationally...and why solidarity is needed now more than ever.
We also chat about where money comes from and what happened in Ireland in the late 60s/early 70s when banks went on strike and people took to the pubs.
Money and Sport with Shane Supple
Shane Supple is a former professional footballer who played for Ipswich Town in the UK Championship before quitting the game aged 22 after becoming disillusioned with the culture in the game.
He returned to Ireland playing GAA with his local club St Brigids and the Dublin senior football team before returning to play with Bohemian FC 6 years later earning a call up to the Irish International Team.
We chat to him about the role of money in sport, in particular football, and how he found contentment playing local sports in Dublin without huge financial rewards.
