I headed off for west Kerry early Saturday morning amid typhoon conditions seeking extended escape from the recent sports news cycle. Money Mayweather; boring, boring Chelsea. I needed a break from it.

It was with some amusement then that I learned that none other than Joe Brolly was due to participate in a Q&A at the Féile Na Bealtaine arts festival just I touched down in Dingle.

There's no escaping sport in this country.
