His tribute to his father was completely genuine in my opinion and I’d never heard it before.  It was for the day that was in it.  A few people on here just being cynical for the sake of it. Boring.

Bet all yous boys slaggin Pat feel bad now 😉😃

Pat stole a healthy living for 30 years. 5 minutes of a sad and joyful personal family story changes nothing in relation to that.

His antics over lockdown too leave a lot to be desired.
What antics?

He claimed over 30 thousand in loss of media earnings despite being on a healthy pension.

He was playing by the rules ... his media business was adversely impacted ... government had a relief scheme, so he used it ... as did half the country from what I can tell.

I was watching on sky where there was proper analysis but I'm curious as to what Pats emotional story was?

His father died after a Kerry Galway game.

Look how many medals my family have.

Now my nephews have a medal too.

It was Pat being Pat, putting on a performance for the gallery. Perhaps he was emotional but he didn't need to do it on live TV.

Harsh enough lads?

No time for Pat's gobshitery but IMO it was a nice personal memory and he got a bit emotional when sharing

Which was very understandable given the personal significance of the occasion (on many fronts)

Any chance his daughter Cara could replace him on Sunday Game?  More pleasing on the eye and will likely talk less shite .

Spillane, O’Rourkes and Brollys legacies on TSG can only be properly judged after next year’s championship.

At present one thing is fairly certain, the entertainment/controversy value will be completely diminished.
