On the record

“Only the lucky few can emerge with silverware at the end of any season. But winning comes in many shapes and forms. Shane Carthy was a winner last Thursday without stepping on a field. Currently on the road of recovery having been diagnosed with depression earlier this year, Shane’s articulate, brave, and moving interview on the Sean O’Rourke show reverberated around the country’s airwaves and, subsequently, social media platforms.”
