The seven-time All-Star joins us as we take a trip down memory lane remembering the Farney County’s first All-Ireland win 25 years ago in 1996.
We look back at Jenny’s career that also delivered the Brendan Martin Cup again the following year; from making her debut as a 14-year-old against Longford all the way to her forced retirement with a knee injury in 2005.
We chat about how ladies football has changed from players appearing on the Late Late Show the day before an All-Ireland final to the professional set-ups we recognise today.
We talk about winning an All-Ireland semi-final against Waterford on her club pitch (Aghabog); playing the INTO Games at Croke Park, Milk Tokens and Monaghan’s rise from their formation just 30 years ago.
Jenny also shares memories from homecomings, All-Ireland finals controversy and disappointment, the importance of team, what would happen if Denzel Washington called, while we also hear from her dog Woody.
And she also names her ‘Fantastic Four.’
