Episode 961: Clutch Dubs, Mayo’s Heartbreak Diet, Jack McCaffrey High Jinks, Lyster’s Stand-Up
Another compelling, absorbing All-Ireland Football Final goes to the wire and once again Dublin emerge victorious by the narrowest of margins. Should Mayo have won it, or are Dublin just the best clutch side we’ve seen in Gaelic Football?
The long west of Ireland winter stretches ahead for Mayo, with plenty of near misses, a sending off and the usual diet of heartache and regret. Are they fragile mentally, or actually the gustiest team of all time? Oisin McConville and Mike Quirke look at the key moments, the key men, Donal Vaughan’s return to civilian life and why Dublin’s dominance is of the non-toxic variety.
Eoin meets an unhappy Dubs fan and has a controversial nomination for MOTM.

Plus there’s Michael Lyster’s stand-up routine, the foreboding symbolism of the Mayo county crest, Dublin’s “99” call and Imelda May’s explosive balladry.
