Episode 859: The Case For Mayo, Hurlers V Footballers, Gabbin’ About Grunge
GAA championship begrudgers be damned, we’re excited about the summer. We’ve got the old gang back together again, with Micheal Quirke and Oisin McConville looking ahead to a festival of attacking football, guaranteed to be full of shocks and surprises…
Murph makes the case for Mayo (no, really), Dublin and Kerry feature prominently, and there’s even a vote of confidence in where Donegal are headed this summer.
And as Oisin works with the Laois hurlers now, we discover what he thinks marks hurlers apart as different to their big-ball counterparts.
We pay tribute to Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman Chris Cornell (look him up, 20-somethings), compare the merits of head-banging and crowd-surfing, re-tell Sam Allardyce’s wine-related pranks, and Ken is reminded of a Keano story he had somehow forgotten.
