Episode 1519: Super 8s, Wimbledon, Cricket World Cup Won By An Irishman, And Is The Return Of Diarmo The Most Un-Jim Gavin Thing He’s Ever Done
It was a stunning weekend of sport, which had all the hallmarks of summer – Wimbledon finals in baking heat, GAA in front of massive crowds, with an added soupçon of Cricket World Cup final madness.
At the end of it all we have Novak Djokovic as Wimbledon men’s champion – but why is he so unpopular? Caitlin Thompson of Racquet magazine answers that question in pretty emphatic style.
We have Oisin McConville and Mike Quirke on hand to tell us the main headlines of a huge weekend of Gaelic football, which included a massive win for Kerry over Mayo in Killarney.
And there’s the return of Diarmuid Connolly to the Dublin panel, announced in typical Jim Gavin style. But is this decision the most un-Jim Gavin thing he’s ever done?
Jim Gavin has given #DubsTV a very positive update on the Dublin panel today, following the Super 8s win over Cork last night
