Episode 1238: Are The Dubs Bored Of Winning, Tyrone Talking About The Final, Koepka’s Hard Knocks, Gymnastics Gold
This year’s All-Ireland football final will be between Dublin and Tyrone, after Tyrone pipped Monaghan by a point, and the Dubs eased past Galway in the semis.
The question is starting to be asked though – are even the Dublin fans bored by Dublin’s dominance at this stage? Ken launches a stirring defence of his boys with a passionate charm offensive, before Mike Quirke and Oisin McConville join us to discuss if Dublin will be forced to break sweat at all this year.
