CULLEN’S COMEBACK; LEGENDS SPEAK; BULGARIA BOUND FOR EUROS

We have a host of legends talking on the show this week, both Irish and International, from Sonia O’Sullivan to Jo Pavey and more.

First up, we look back on last weekend’s Novice Cross Country, which saw a pair of invaders from North and South take the titles in Dublin. We also analyse the Jingle Bells 5k, which saw Mary Cullen and John Travers roar back into form.

At the launch of the Irish Runner Annual, Catherina McKiernan, John Treacy, Sonia O’Sullivan and Gerard Hartmann were honoured, and we we there to bring our listeners some pearls of wisdom from them.

This weekend, super-mum Jo Pavey is in contention for the British Sports Personality of the Year Award, and we gave her a call to speak to her about a memorable year.

Elsewhere, we discuss the explosive revelations of doping in Russia and why the IAAF could be in hot water as a result of alleged bribes. Finally, we preview this Sunday’s European Cross Country as Fionnuala Britton goes to Bulgaria hoping to win her third title.
