On this episode, I was chatting to Dr. Darragh Graham from one of Ireland’s hottest bands right now, Hermitage Green. Darragh is one of my closest friends, and I say from a slightly biased point of view that he is one of the most versatile, talented, and insightful people that I know. From holding a PhD in sports science, competing internationally in track and field, coaching in professional rugby, and for All ireland winning football and hurling teams, to being a founding member of one of the freshest sounding bands in Ireland.

We discussed his athletics career, ups and downs, his time with Leinster Rugby, Tipperary hurlers and Kerry footballers, the forming of Hermitage Green.

We also delve into life on the road, being inside the notoriously cut-throat music industry, the future plans of the band.
