Irish soccer legend Tony Cascarino is Jarlath Regan’s guest this week for his ‘Irishman Abroad’ podcast.

Born and raised in Kent, Cascarino is not technically an “Irish emigrant” – an anomaly for the series which is explored in the interview as he tells Jarlath about being eligible to play for Ireland, his struggle with confidence, and life after international football.

The ‘Irishman Abroad’ podcasts are free to download on iTunes. Read more about the series in the Generation Emigration interview with Jarlath Regan.
