Today seen a record-breaking crowd of 115,500 people pass through the gates in Ratheniska and over 200k the last two days, with one more day to go serious money made at 25Ä per person.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

What is the correct way of saying it?
Laois had a hurler call Paddy Ruschitzko and have a town called Ratheniska. Is there some Polish connection?

Eh? Where were the mines?! I know there were some in Castlecomer, all right. Pretty sure Paddy Ruschitzko was born in American to an Irish woman, but am open to correction on that.

RTE are a shambles when it comes to pronunciation!
