Podcast: Juniors make the jump; Fagan back on top, but questions remain; World Cross woes

This week, we pick out the stars from last weekend’s National junior and under-23 championships, and hear from some of the stars of the day such as Phil Healy and Karl Griffin.

Back in the capital, Feidhlim Kelly was our man on the ground at the Raheny 5, and he gives us the lowdown, on a day that saw Lizzie Lee and Martin Fagan take the wins.

We re-open the debate about Martin Fagan’s comeback, and ask whether too much furore has been made on his return, and we discuss the issues that remain on his re-entry to the sport.

We discuss the absence of an Irish team at the World Cross Country, and re-live the wonder-kick of a kid from Limerick which went global this week. Finally we preview this weekend’s events at home and abroad and bid farewell to one of our team.
