Episode 941: Mayo Ride Again, Tyrone’s Need For Speed, The Money Belt, Mick McCarthy’s Seven Days
The last time Dublin lost in the championship, it was to the Ulster champions, 24 hours after a replayed Mayo-Kerry game. So, does this random fact have anything to do with the two games this weekend? Almost certainly not, but 3-time All-Ireland winner Enda McGinley and Karol Mannion indulge us for a bumper football preview.
Tyrone need to summon the sort of raw aggression that they brought to the famous 2003 semi-final win over Kerry, while Mayo need to keep pulling rabbits out of hats – we go deep on two games that promise massive entertainment.

Ken joins us live from the Howard Johnson Motel on Tropicana Avenue in Las Vegas, accommodation he tells us was seductively inspired by the H blocks of the Maze Prison.
He’s there for the McGregor/Mayweather fight, and we talk about the Money Belt, which does a pretty good job of highlighting the exact thing that is putting people off this fight in the first place.
