Where a ‘Dynasty’ is defined as a team that wins three or more championships in a row – Ireland holds two of the greatest Dynasties that ever competed, not just in women’s sports, but in all sports, across the globe.

Newstalk takes a trip back to Dublin in the 1940s, when one of the greatest ‘Dynasty’ teams in history began their famous streak of winning... in a new radio documentary series: ‘Dynasty; The Greatest Ladies Teams Of All Time’.  In episode two it's Kilkenny in the 1980’s, when one of the greatest ‘dynasty’ teams in history began their famous streak of winning.

In 1948, the Dublin Camogie team went on a streak of winning All Ireland titles that may never be surpassed and 20 years later, the Kilkenny Camogie team went on their own streak of winning 7 Championships in a row and 5 League titles.

In the series, producer Jonathan Farrelly speaks with with Phylis Breslin (former Camogie Association President and Referee) about that infamous Dublin team and their top player, Kay Mills. We also speak with Professor Paul Rouse from UCD who gives us the history of the sport and then with Anne Downey, one of the greatest ever to play the sport, who gives us her experience of captaining that famous Kilkenny team and what that meant to her and all the other players.
