The Sunday Game has been an institution in Ireland for decades.

Michael Lyster first presented the show all the way back on June 10,1984, and became its face and voice for three and a half decades.

Cyril Farrell and Tomas Mulcahy were added to the show as the years went by, and both the Galway and Cork man set the agenda in households around the country.

Upon retiring in 2018 after the Dublin v Tyrone All-Ireland final, Lyster said: “I can’t say that I want to go but then I can’t say that I don’t either.

“Look I have a big run at this – this year will be my 35th year presenting

“The Sunday Game and also on a second note to that next year I’ll be 40 years in RTÉ so you know I think you deserve the t-shirt at that stage – so it’ll be fine.”

Mulcahy retired from media duties in 2021, and tweeted: “After 25 years I’m moving from The Sunday Game TV and Radio seats to the stand. Great times, great memories. 

“A special mention to Bill Lalor who brought me in, Paul Byrnes for 19 years and well, Michael Lyster. And to all of the pundits, past and present.”

Long-time RTÉ colleague Michael Duignan, an Offaly GAA icon, was among those to pay tribute.

“Mul it’s been my great pleasure to work with you down the years.

“You are a brilliant and passionate pundit and one of the soundest people I’ve ever come across in the GAA. 

“Your love of hurling always shines through. Hope to see you on my travels this summer.”
