Talking to a hooker – the Keith Wood Culch.ie interview

Keith Wood

I met Keith Wood yesterday. No, not the guy with the Rolling Stones, I mean the Irish rugby player, ex captain of the Irish rugby team, capped 58 times for Ireland, world record holder of 15 international test tries… and voracious reader, movie fan and music lover.

Sport of course is not strictly pop culture, I know, but we’ve talked more than rugby. The man is an icon, cultural as well as sporting and it was a real pleasure to be able to ask some of the questions I’ve wondered about. I also asked the lovely folk on twitter for some questions, and they’re in the video too.

I didn’t clean the camera lens after SPWC Cork so the image isn’t great and the room was echoey so the sound isn’t the best BUT I have to give major credit to the lovely Ruth from WHPR who helped out by holding the camera very steady. Fair play to you!

Keith was in Dublin to announce Bushmills sponsorship of the British and Irish Lions. A huge thanks to Nora from WHPR for the opportunity to meet the legend.

    I met him once in the Shanahans bar. I was drinking lots of champagne on a pre recessioncompany night out so I don’t remember what I said to him but I’m sure it was eloquent as always.

    I’m sure it was VL. He’s a genuinely approachable and nice man, and very good to talk to. I was impressed. He even made me interested in rugby!

    What a legend. Great interview Darragh.

    Nice one. Thanks for posing that question, Darragh. 70s Welsh and late 80s New Zealanders… nice little insight.

    Nice man is Keith. I’ll be sure to bring up some of this next time I see him.
