Two Connacht teams contested yesterdays AI QF. Not a Connacht commentator in sight (I lie, Michael Lyster)! Instead we had the three Stooges. Co-commentary was from a Derry man. The lack of a Connacht commentator is a real gripe with me. Where is O'Hara? Connacht men always understand local Connacht rivalry better.

Considering you could have had Martin Carney I wouldn't be complaining. He has got the All Ireland final the last few years and should let go by RTE. The man hasn't got a clue what's going on a lot of the time and can't relate to modern day football

Martin Carney was doing co commentary for Mid West Radio.

They announced about 20 mins before throw in that Keegan wasn't starting...

Carney then proceeded to go through the team just before throw in and said "Lee Keegan at 6"

FFS.  >:(

I thought Donal óg was decent on match analysis today, streets ahead of the shite we get for the football

Have to agree - he was on the ball calling out the football coverage from the 00s. Loughnane and Shefflin were fairly on the back foot.

RTE missed out on not getting Tommy Walsh, a far better Kilkenny pundit than Shefflin.

Jackie in his dapper suits knows how to keep his profile high, the odd wee controversial comment but by and large he's on the button and not afraid to speak of the "dark arts" he and his fellow defenders in Kilkenny would have dabbled in when the need arose.
