RTÉ already have their own excellent GAA podcast. Rory O'Neill and Mikey Stafford are resident.  O'Neil is excellent but already works for TSG. Eamon Fitzmaurice and Michael Foley were on recently.  Very informative.

Rory O'Neill interupts everybody too much.

Apart from that it's good. Mixture of football and hurling.

I wonder will they continue when the club championships kick in?

Watch the game and make your own assessment, job done
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

This has been covered quite extensively. The GAA's own rights restrictions preclude RTE from having any type of midweek show - they aren't allowed to use the footage!

You’d wonder why that is the case ?.

Crazy in this day and age. . . you have easy access to all broadcast sports and can see the successful broadcasting formats.

You audition lads for personality and give them some media training so they can handle themselves properly on screen without losing their opinions and backbone.

The fact there isn't a recap style show like MNF with proper analysis and a legend of the game as a guest to add some extra insight is ridiculous as far as I can see.

Even some kind of mish mash magazine show presented by the 2 Johnnies (or someone like that) lacing a bit of craic through the GAA scene would be deadly.

They have so much they can do and they just won't it's so frustrating!

Parkinson said he pitched a mid week show to them and they didn't even acknowledge him. RTE have a lot of programming to fit in but you would think an hour long show would be cheap enough to make and you'd have a decent audience. Look at the amount of GAA podcasts going and doing well - you'd think they could get a couple of hours a week out even with decent audience numbers.
Pod cast are the ideal form for Gaa . they can be as local as you like. I listen to stuff on ah ref in mayo i would have zero intrest in listeniing to in other counties . club manager merry go round and Junior noth mayo winter league results ETC.

A national station just cannot bring that kind of news or the show would last about 6 hours
If you make yourself understood, you're always speaking well. Moliere
