The focus switches to sportswriting on Tuesday as Gavin Cooney welcomes our latest guest to Behind The Lines. This week we’re delighted to welcome Tim Wigmore, sports journalist with the Daily Telegraph and author of The Best: How Elite Athletes Are Made.

Previous guests on the series include Gary Lineker, Wright Thompson, Anna Kessel, Malachy Clerkin, Caitlin Thompson, Dion Fanning and last week’s contributor, John Leonard, with all episodes available to members of The42.

Coaching takes centre-stage on Wednesday as Shane Keegan‘s popular podcast, How To Win At Dominoes, continues. Neil Manchip, Shane Lowry’s coach and high performance director of Golf Ireland, is in the hot seat for what should be another great chat.

Others fascinating thinkers to feature across the two seasons are Paul Kinnerk, Dr Ed Coughlan, Cliodhna O’Connor, Padraig Harrington, Gary Keegan, Pat Lam and Cheddar Plunkett.

In more good news, Feburary’s Bylines Essay will also be available to digest. It’s with IFTA-winning director Dave Tynan, director of Dublin Oldschool and Heartbreak.

And as always, we’ll have our weekly Insiders newsletters for GAA, Soccer and Rugby fans spread out through the week.

Plenty there, and much more to come in the coming weeks and months.
