April 24, 2021

Former Cork dual star Jamie Wall made an appearance on the Late Late Show.

RTÉ Late Late Show viewers hailed former Cork dual star Jamie Wall an ”inspiration” as he told his story to host Ryan Tubridy.

Jamie, who played both football and hurling for the county at minor level, and went on to three Munster U21FC titles, was praised by thousands of people across Twitter for his bravery and courage on last night's show.

His life was changed forever in 2014 when, just three days after he played in a Munster intermediate hurling final against Tipperary, he suffered a serious injury that left him paralysed from his midriff down.

But Jamie hasn't let his physical disability get in the way of his involvement in GAA, now recognised as one of the most astute coaches in hurling, he has guided his club Kilbrittain and college Mary Immaculate to success.
