Episode 1730: Why Knock-Out Gaelic Football Might Be Making A Comeback, Mike Quirke’s Pretty Mad First 6 Months In Inter-County Management, Conor McGregor’s National Address
Only 1 of the first 20 All-Ireland football championships were decided within the calendar year, so if there’s one thing for certain, it’s that there will be a 2020 All-Ireland champion crowned, eventually.
On this day in 1895 the much delayed All-Ireland Senior Championship Finals of 1894 took place at Clonturk Park in the Drumcondra suburb of Dublin. Both Finals featured @OfficialCorkGAA and @DubGAAOfficial, with @RockiesCork and Nils Desperandum representing @OfficialCorkGAA pic.twitter.com/60It2GB37v

What looks like the most time-efficient way of deciding that champion might be a return to straight knock-out championship, and to discuss why it was gotten rid of in the first place, and the winner-take-all benefits of it, we reunite the old gang of Oisin McConville and Mike Quirke. And Mike tells us what being an inter-county manager is like in these strange, strange times.
Plus we commend our leader Conor McGregor on his speech to the nation, we hear from Pat Kenny, and Murph defends his native Irish brogue.
