Episode 2555: GAA Meets Boxing World, Who Is To Blame, Pedant’s Corner, Messi 2026
The first rule in the Eamon Dunphy school of punditry is – find out who to blame. So just who is at fault if Katie Taylor ends up never fighting in Croke Park?
Gavan Casey of the42.ie and Michael Foley of the Sunday Times talk to us about why the GAA might have been reticent and what Eddie Hearn’s bottom-line is.
We also discuss Messi’s plans for the future, the Carlisle Grounds’ rich history, Pedant’s Corner and Frances Murphy’s TV guide to the sporting weekend.
