The GAA has been pretty cautious in its approach to planning its return to play but as restrictions are eased across the country, we talk to Oisin McConville and Mike Quirke about the next steps.

Oisin is a senior club manager, and Mike is in charge of the Laois footballers, so they’re seeing the problems first-hand – we talk about everyone making sacrifices, inter-county managers taking the piss and a chance for experimentation amid the chaos.

Plus there’s Ken’s misty-eyed reminiscences of Marseilles in the summer-time, Russians on tour, and Davy Fitz.
