At the launch of Brendan Cummins’ book ‘Standing My Ground’ we spoke to Paul Collins, Journalist with Today FM and friend of Brendan. Paul talked to us about the qualities that Brendan brought to the game of hurling that would make him a good choice as future manager of the Tipperary senior hurling team. Despite pressing him to share some anecdotes about Brendan, he pleaded libel laws and declined to share one with us!
We had a bit of banter with Paul at the end – he reckoned one of us was good and the other was cat! You can decide which was which 🙂
At the launch of Brendan Cummins’ book ‘Standing My Ground’ which was co-written with Jackie Cahill, we interviewed Brendan, former goalkeeper for the Tipperary Senior Hurling Team.
