Tommy Hewitt

On this week’s show Tommie Hewitt speaks about his side’s disappointment in not finishing the job against the champions last weekend while giving Aaron a dressing down for writing off his side this season.

Breifne and Aaron start the show discussing the action from last weekend’s games and some of the major incidents arising from those games, the arrival of legendary World Cup Winner and Olympic gold medalist Heather O’Reilly to the league with Shelbourne and the announcement of extended coverage to the league by TG4 in the coming weeks.

Tommy shares his thoughts on Athlone’s fine form and the changing expectations and lack of egos in their dressing room. He discusses the manner in which his side were written off by sections of the media throughout the season and his delight at the way his side have reacted to every obstacle they’ve faced this season.

The lads finish with a look forward to the fixtures this weekend including the first TG4 broadcast of the season where O’Reilly and her new Shelbourne team mates will be the visitors to the Showgrounds as they try to get their faltering run to the title back on track.
