OurGame Live #4 — debates and GAA news

Foot

Join us live at 12:30pm as Shane Stapleton, Fintan O’Toole of The42, and Michael Verney of the Independent pore over some big talking points and GAA news in our games.

In the latest of our ‘Best All-Ireland winners’ series, which looks at the last 16 sides to lift the Liam MacCarthy Cup, our panel looks at a quarter-final clash of two excellent sides.

This time, it’s a shootout between Clare 2013 and Kilkenny 2011.

Will the Marble County side that regained their crown from Tipperary beat Davy Fitzgerald’s thrilling Banner outfit?

After all the talking is done, the public will then decide via a poll on OurGame.ie.

In the latest of our ‘Sliding Doors’ moments, our trio analyse the impact of a bout of flu picked up by Brian Whelahan in the lead-up to the 1998 All-Ireland final.

The man wearing number 5 had a penchant for starring in the big games.

This time, however, illness would make his task even harder as Offaly faced old foes Kilkenny on the biggest stage.

OurGame Live will also talk about footballers we didn’t quite see enough of over the years due to injury.

Michael Meehan shone brightly in the maroon of Galway, but persistent niggles prevented him from fully realising his talents.

Matt Connor of Offaly, Colm O’Neill of Cork, and Kerry star Tommy Walsh all broke hearts during their careers, but the curse of injuries curtailed their class to varying degrees.
