THIS week’s Take Your Points guest is former Antrim player Clare Timoney who joins the show to discuss her career playing intercounty football, the challenge of balancing soccer and ladies football, and her hopes for playing with Bredagh.
Timoney tells the story of how she started out life as an All-Saints player in Antrim, but when that club folded she went to play for new club Bredagh.
She explains her experiences of starting county football as a teenager and the ways that she dealt with that pressure. Timoney was also a top soccer player, and featured for Ballymena United as well as Linfield. She outlines how the experiences of playing those codes and the benefits that playing soccer brought to her life as a gaelic footballer.
Bredagh is her club and she has enjoyed some great days with the Belfast-based Down club. Timoney explained how she believes that the future is bright for the club, however they do face some challenges.
Also on the show, Cahal Carvill talks about the reaction he received about a recent column he wrote with regards to players getting involved in social and political issues. Carvill also looks at how crowds could soon return to matches and what he thinks that will mean for the GAA.
As well as all that, both Carvill and Timoney discuss the state of play in the upcoming championships in both mens and women’s football, as well as the Hurling Championships which throw in this weekend.
