This week we also speak to Nathan Carter ahead of his Thurles concert and we have a pair of tickets to give away.

In sport decorated Tipperary senior hurler Paddy Stapleton has announced his decision to retire from the inter-county scene and a fixtures impasse means that the North division will not be represented in this weekend's county under-21A hurling semi-finals while Cashel's Paddy Butler has signed a new two-year deal with Pau.
