The country has been taken back into lockdown, with level 5 restrictions meaning everyone is feeling the pinch… but the inter-county GAA season has survived. The reaction of some has been to ask just what exactly it is that the GAA has done in the last 6 months to deserve this preferential treatment.

Oisin McConville and Mayo legend Andy Moran join us to talk about why the GAA needs to keep going, why the players need to be more vocal, and why personal responsibility has to come into it if your county team does something unprecedented in the next 2 months.

Plus we talk about Mayo’s dismantling of Galway in Tuam on Sunday, why Aidan O’Shea could work at full-forward, and why lateral movement is still the key for an inside forward, particularly as you get older – from that particular skill’s greatest exponent of the last decade.
