Pat's cute hoorism Tyrone baiting compensated for ALL shortcomings. He took big (stuttering) Colm Cavanagh to the cleaners with just a conspiracy theory (or was it?). Although it doesn't take much, but the fact that most all Tyronies are agitated by well mannered Pat is just yet another testimony to their paranoia and deep insecurity.

Mandatory retirement from RTE/RTE contractors on age grounds?  I think he'll be 67 this year.

Good stuff, that means Joe Duffy is gone in January!

One of the best footballers of all time. Punditry not so much. RTE need to take a look at the Sky and BBC coverage/Punditry and modernise.

RTÉ did a decent but of punditry for the Tailteann Semis and Final.
No rants, no waffling, intelligent questions etc.
Remember we're a noble race from a land where Kings once trod.

Pat only said couple weeks in SW Tyrone conned Kerry last year. He said Tyrone were masters of one in a row and won soft All Ireland in 2021.   He will never get over Tyrone beaten Kerry in 03,05,08.

Thanks. I say was him. I thought Lawlor called him Nicky but heard wrong.

If I was from Kerry, I would not bring up soft All-Irelands. They have lost the vast majority of their tight finals in the last few decades and been uncontested in the rest.

They way he went on and so many others, it was as if Tyrone had went and used the delay to use voodoo on the Kerry team.

If Kerry were as good as they were made out to be, they should have beaten Tyrone well, a Tyrone that had significant issues in the run up to the game, plenty of testimony from the players and management attesting to that.
