The lads discuss a bumper weekend of GAA action, with Denis Bastick, Damian Lawlor and Cora Staunton joining Michael Verney.
We had an exciting weekend of league action as Mayo, Dublin, Cavan and Sligo collected silverware at Croke Park.
GAA president Larry McCarthy made some striking comments during a trophy presentation, saying “recent criticism of our ethos has been unhelpful and critiques should never degenerate into personal attacks”.
RTE host Damian Lawlor was on hand to chat with Michael Verney about this development, and much more.
Former Dublin football star Denis Bastick, a five-time winner of the All-Ireland SFC, then joined in the discussion as the league final action came into focus.
“I think Dublin are in a good place,” Bastick explains after the win over Derry, before adding “I think Pat Gilroy’s fingerprints were all over Stephen (Cluxton)’s return”.
The iconic midfielder then spoke about how Cluxton will be driving things on in Dublin training, and how there is another couple of gears in Dessie Farrell’s team.
Bastick reflects on his Shawn Michaels-inspired kick-up in the 2011 All-Ireland final, and his favourite moments in the famous blue jersey.
Mayo ladies football legend Cora Staunton joined the chat and denied claims that goalkeeper Colm Reape should have been dismissed for taking out Johnny Heaney of Galway.
“It was very difficult for him to slow down,” she says. “For me, it would have been a harsh black card.”
“Aidan has been a big plus for us this league campaign,” she adds of powerhouse O’Shea before going on to speak about her AFLW career.
Mayo have a quick turnaround to their Connacht SFC opener against high-flying Roscommon next weekend.
It allowed Rossies boss Davy Burke to study his opposition at Croke Park on Sunday, realistically putting Kevin McStay and Co at a disadvantage.
“Personally, I think it’s wrong by the GAA,” says Staunton. “I think there should be a two or three-week break from the league final to the championship.”
