Extratime.ie Sportscast Episode 89 - Paul O'Conor - Natalya Coyle - Lee Grace
Published: August 07, 2017

It’s a bumper edition of the extratime.ie Sportscast as presenter Declan Marron is once again joined in studio by extratime.ie reporter Dave Donnelly.


It’s been a great few weeks for Ireland’s Modern Pentathlete Natalya Coyle. In June, Natalya and her team-mate Arthur Lanigan-O’Keeffe finished in first place at the International Modern Pentathlon Union (UIPM) World Cup IV. That was followed by the news that she had been retrospectively been bumped up to sixth place at the Rio Olympics.


Natalya joins Declan and Dave on the phone from a training camp in Poland as she talks about the increasing profile of Modern Pentathlon in Ireland, drugs in sport as well as her targets for the future.


The transfer window shut last week and we have two players on the Sportscast that secured moves from the West to Dublin clubs. First up St. Patrick’s Athletic new signing Paul O’Conor talks about life at his new club having moved from Limerick and the targets for the rest of the current season.


It’s been a big few years for Lee Grace. Having started out with Wexford Youths, a move to Galway United meant leaving his job in the Army. Now the Tipperary native has moved to Shamrock Rovers and he talks to the lads about the whirlwind few years and the move to professional football.
