With, Joanne O’Riordan
Welcome to Lennon Courtney Left Alone, with Guests.
For this series, we’re doing things differently. We’ve all been left alone too much this year, so we’ve asked some excellent guests to join our podcast party.
This week, our guest is sports writer, podcast host and activist, Joanne O’Riordan. Joanne first gained attention for skipping school to confront then Taoiseach Enda Kenny about his proposed plan to reduce disability funding during his election. In April 2012, she spoke before the UN and challenged the body to create technology to help disabled people such as herself. She was named Young Person of the Year at the People of the Year awards in 2012. Joanne is an activist for people with disabilities, a motivational speaker and a sports columnist with The Irish Times. She appears in the 2013 documentary No Limbs No Limits.
We always ask, so why stop now - before you hit play, we’d really appreciate it if you took a minute to leave us a short positive review and five stars at this link. We know you hear it all the time but that’s because it really helps the podcast grow. We can’t do it without you.
Until next week, stay safe and thanks so much for listening.
Sonya and Brendan.
