What is it like for an elite sportsperson when their career comes to an end?

How many retire feeling satisfied with their achievements, and how many are left wanting more?

Damian Lawlor has been a sports journalist for over two decades. He is the author of When the World Stops Watching: Life After the Game, which tells the story of what happened next for a number of Irish sports stars.

He joined us on The Last Word along with former Irish rugby international Marcus Horan and former Galway hurler Tony Óg Regan, who spoke about their own experiences of retirement.
