Episode 1497: Gaelic Football Is Ready For A Big Weekend, 3 Provincial Finals, Ken Runs The Rule Over The Royals, Nordic Skiing Marathon
It’s time for Gaelic football to take centre-stage this weekend, with 3 provincial finals in Ulster, Munster and Leinster, as well as a round of qualifiers that will see 8 counties’ summers end right here.
Oisin McConville has seen every single minute of every single Ulster championship game so far this year live and in the flesh, and he’s on with Mike Quirke talking BIG about Donegal, and bemoaning the fact that Meath and Cork just aren’t good enough to put it up to Kerry and Dublin anymore.
Plus there’s a hesitant prediction that Mayo’s season will end this Saturday evening, and we urge the GAA to go back and look again at Wednesday evening and Friday evening championship fixtures.
Jim McGuinness showed courage to step outside his comfort zone & dared to be different. Begrudgery is misplaced & unwarranted, if not entirely unexpected. Anthony Cunningham has done something similar. From today’s @ExaminerSport https://t.co/NkOThCj9Pw
