EPISODE 13: DONEGAL: Should Donegal have Universal Basic Income?

We’re all about radical solutions to big issues here at United Ireland, and this week we journey to Donegal, to see whether what’s often called the forgotten county could benefit from new thinking. Joining us this week is the mastermind behind Finland’s Universal Basic Income experiment, Olli Kangas, and Donegal doer and thinker Declan Meehan gives us the lay of the land. Our County Rep this week is Una’s better half, Sarah Francis, who is repping the north west hard.

Andrea bowls us over with her Donegal facts, and we also talk about Jeffrey Epstein, Hong Kong protests, and our all-star drag lineup for Love Sensation when Tuna Chicken Roll goes live!

Enya, Football Special, Tory kings, Donegal queens, fishing, Brexit, wee Daniel, this episode has it all! Donegal abú!


EPISODE 8: Has the World Cup changed women’s sport forever?

This week, it’s a special episode of United Ireland.

We take a deep dive with some football experts about the seismic impact the women’s World Cup has had. Is this the most important women’s tournament of all time? What impact did lesbians have on the tournament? Why are female footballers so much more political than male ones? Are the USA cocky or brill? What does this all mean for pay equity for female athletes?

Joining the episode is Chief Football Writer for The Independent (UK) Miguel Delaney, and a woman at the heart of RTE’s highly praised tournament coverage, Elaine ‘Bucko’ Buckley. It’s a football feelings frenzy!
