In this episode of Setanta Talks, recorded in late 2019, we chat to All-Star Tipperary Hurler Brendan Maher and Strength & Conditioning Coach for the Tipperary hurlers Cairbre Ó’ Cairealláin.

Setanta College’s Will Hughes chats to the pair about working together during Brendan’s return from his ACL injury, effective methods of load monitoring, comparisons between professional and inter-county set-ups and winning the 2019 All-Ireland Hurling Championship.

The episode was recorded following a workshop with Cairbre at Setanta HQ last year, and we were delighted to get an insight into the relationship between the player and S&C coach during the return to play following an ACL injury and what it takes to return to the top level.
