Episode 1822: Oisin McConville And Michael Duignan On The GAA’s Return To Play, Crowds, Live-Streaming And Covid – And We Hear From Five-Time World Cup Winner Ken Early
Club games in the GAA are back, and we have seen an explosion of interest in games at all levels… if Murph’s parents Tony and Frances are anything to go by. We speak to our resident analysts Oisin McConville and Michael Duignan about their experiences since the come-back – including live-streaming, all-ticket junior A games, and socially distant crowds.
And if the GAA can adapt at light speed to the various challenges of the last few months, which of these changes will hang around for the long term?
