Mickey Connaughton, former Clostoken and Galway hurler, was a member of the 1962 Galway Intermediate team that won the Munster Intermediate Championship.
In this episode Mickey discusses the circumstances of the eye injury that forced him to prematurely end his playing career. He talks too of his hurling as a youth with Kilchreest, Kilconieron, Closteken, Loughrea and with Cashen Rovers in London where he, as with many of his generation, emigrated to in the hope of finding work.
