Episode 1881: GAA Inter-county Season Survives Level 5, Mayo Humiliate Galway, Andy Moran On How To Play Full-Forward
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.
Should the GAA Championships be going ahead if families are to be kept apart and small businesses that haven't been responsible for any clusters are forced to shut? I would love to understand the rationale for this.

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.
My simple opinion. Please try to keep Sport going. The simple answer is to stop everything. Wait till the long dark days and nights kick in. If we are in lockdown imagine the difference live matches will make to our mood. Not easy for any of us but we have to keep positive. ????

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.
