Episode 927: Galway’s J.C, Mayo Sing, Ken’s Defence of Crumlin Projects, County Loyalties

We talk to Michael Duignan, and Malachy Clerkin of the Irish Times about the game of the year so far, what Galway can take from it ahead of the final, and the seemingly never-ending back and forth of this enthralling rivalry.
