Episode 2846: Club Finals Come Good, Burke Brilliance, The Glass Ceiling
The All-Ireland club finals don’t always deliver quality games, but they are usually good for a narrative arc or two… and in 2024, we managed to get the best of both worlds.
Maurice Brosnan of the Irish Examiner talks to us about Éanna Burke’s last-minute wizardry that won it for St Thomas’, and we discuss Conor Glass’ mastery of the big moments which will be the stand-out memory of Glen’s maiden All-Ireland club final win.
Ken weighs in on what hurling can do to improve itself – and his findings may enrage traditionalists – and Eoin makes the argument for wet-weather-only fixtures.
