Episode 1426: Tennis Ball Protests, Hurling League Semis, Mayo’s Strange Campaign, Ken In Old Trafford
Eoin McDevitt has a strange ability to answer the questions you weren’t even asking – and right off the bat today he is on top form, explaining just why we might be watching a cascade of tennis balls at the Aviva Stadium tomorrow night.
‘Maybe I’ll take a tennis racket with me.’

Michael Duignan is in studio to talk to us about a curiously defanged hurling league, which has seen Limerick and Waterford progress to next Sunday’s final. Does the league necessarily have to be sacrificed on the altar of the championship – we’re not so sure.
Former Mayo legend John Casey joins us to talk about how Mayo have nearly backed into a league football final against Kerry after a series of games that showed the best and worst of themselves.
Plus we hear the argument that John Delaney is under-paid, Ken shares his dead leg trauma, Meath are back, and we pay tribute to Alex Ferguson’s medical updates.
