Episode 1268: Dublin Tick Cork Off List, Sean Cavanagh’s Face And GAA’s Culture Problem, Dominant Puspure, Sports Obsessive Shane Ross
Dublin have been the best team in ladies football for the last two years, but yesterday they finally got the result they needed to truly frank that form, when they beat their old nemesis Cork in the All-Ireland final in Croke Park.
10-time All-Ireland winning legend Valerie Mulcahy and Malachy Clerkin join us to discuss whether this is a changing of the guard, and if Dublin are about to embark on a period of dominance similar to their men’s team – we’re not so sure.
Sean Cavanagh was in studio with us last Thursday talking about on-field violence, and just two days after that, he suffered horrific facial injuries in a Tyrone senior club championship game. Oisin McConville talks to us about whether Tyrone have a problem, or if its endemic in the GAA nationwide, and if the PSNI is an organisation that GAA players in Northern Ireland are comfortable reporting such incidents to.
And so it continues ????????@KCsixtyseven Edendork played Moy today in the Tyrone senior championship first round
20 yellows -6 reds-1 Black
And Sean Cavanagh transported away to hospital in an ambulance. The man that inflicted the injury did not receive a card of any description pic.twitter.com/gOWQdhLVoc

Plus there’s sports mad Shane Ross, Murph finally feels respected, and Ken tells us his bombshell leaving cert results night story which we were cruelly denied last week.
A statement from Shane Ross, congratulating Sanita Puspure on her success at the Rowing World Championships. RTE’s headline refers to “Dominant Puspure” and Ross (or his ghostwriter) apparently thinks that’s her ACTUAL NAME pic.twitter.com/LnDabZGQrq

Sean Cavanagh has made more championships appearances than any other outfield player in Gaelic football history, won 3 All-Irelands, and 5 All-stars. So why does he cringe when he remembers certain parts of that glittering inter-county career?
