Episode 905: Donal Og On Modern Tactics And Old Fashioned Analysis, Kevin McStay On Roscommon’s Perfect Day, Lovely Lovely Hurling
It’s a smorgasbord of GAA goodness on the show today, as we talk to two of the most interesting characters in the sport – Kevin McStay and Donal Óg Cusack.
For McStay, it’s been a topsy-turvy 2017. Throughout a tough league campaign for his Roscommon team, rumours of discontent and discord swirled around his panel.
But when he was in studio with us in May, he was bullish about his young side’s chances of a big summer, and that faith was repaid in spades on Sunday, when they won their first Connacht title in 7 years in glorious circumstances.

He tells us about Sunday’s homecoming, where he went with a minute to go and the win was finally secured, and why it wasn’t vindication.

And Donal Óg Cusack is in studio to talk to us about tactics, about comparing football and hurling analysis and why he’s so excited about where hurling is now.
Plus there’s squandermania, sliotar skullduggery, Ken’s bonfire of the vanities, why hurling is so lovely, and Sopot’s Clark Kent.
