This episode is being released on September 15th, 2021, which is the one year anniversary of the passing of the great Pat Smullen. I wanted to do something to mark that.
Rather than try to tell Pat's life story, as this podcast typically does with its subjects, I thought it best instead to speak to a number of people close to Pat, to talk about some good days, hear some happy memories, and hopefully put some smiles on faces on what is a sad day.
I was lucky enough to speak to ten brilliant people for this: Pat's wife Frances, Dermot Weld, Mick Kinane, Jamie Spencer, Ruby Walsh, Kevin O'Ryan, Fran Berry, Kevin Manning, Declan McDonogh and Gavin Lynch. Thank you to all for your contributions.
