The Players’ Voice is a podcast brought to you by the Gaelic Players Association in collaboration with Real Talks. Hosted by former Cavan goalkeeper Alan O’Mara, each episode takes you inside the minds of inspiring inter-county GAA players as they talk about life on and off the field.
If you search for the Players Voice feed, you’ll find the rest of this season’s episodes, we’ll be bringing you each episode in the OTB GAA feed across the summer.
Ep. 1 is with former Mayo footballer and current CEO of the Gaelic Players Association, Tom Parsons. He discusses the many highs and lows he experienced while playing for Mayo between 2008 and 2020, including a horrific leg injury, and being dropped from the squad. He also explains how a journey of self-discovery has made him a more resilient person and leader, and how proud he is to represent and support inter-county players in his role.
This podcast is brought to you as part of BEO 360, a GPA programme that empowers inter-county players across 4 key areas - life skills, wellbeing, dual career and transitions. Please go to www.beo360.gaelicplayers.com to learn more.
