Episode 2695: Limerick’s Reign, English Rain, Pogacar’s Pain
Limerick’s four-in-a-row was secured in Croke Park yesterday in thrilling style, and Jamie Wall and Malachy Clerkin are with us today to answer a question being more and more insistently asked – are Limerick the best ever?
We congratulate Ken on Limerick’s success while he studies the hurling history books and explains why Kilkenny’s Cody era is not all it was cracked up to be.
And we look at some extraterrestrial performances in the Tour de France and the madness of rain delays in cricket.
