Republic of Ireland footballer James McClean was today involved in the launch of the Aviva Stadium's new sensory hub.

It is designed to support visitors to the stadium who have sensory issues related to conditions like ADHD, dyspraxia and autism.

James has a personal interest in the issue, as his two-year-old daughter Willow is autistic.

He joined us on The Last Word to talk about the difference this new initiative will make, and how he and his family deal with the sectarian abuse he has received at games.
