Episode 1242: All-Ireland Hurling Final Preview At The End Of The Greatest Ever Championship
It has been by general acclaim the greatest hurling championship of all time, and there’s every chance that we’ll get a final worthy of the occasion between Galway and Limerick on Sunday.
Malachy Clerkin of the Irish Times and Donal O’Grady, captain of Limerick when they won the Munster title in 2013, join us to discuss Limerick’s solidity and self-belief, Galway’s monstrous bulk, and the temptation to focus on Johnny Glynn when they have plenty of other ways to hurt you.
Donal also tells us about the thrill of commentating for local radio on big games, why everyone in Limerick feels invested and has a role to play, and, to avoid accusations of bias, we play the Galway audio that appears capable of making grown men of any county allegiance cry.
Plus there’s Murph’s youtube black hole, and Ken’s love of Limerick – and Kieran Donaghy.

His first break in TV, how his wife saved his life, thanking your maker, finding the fun in sport, and wrangling Sunday Game pundits – its a Lyster Special with Second Captains!!
