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.

Just watching TSG, two inaccuracies in the first ten minutes - "mayo haven't beaten Kerry in 25 years" from Lyster and "mayo changed their FB for the replay, Brendan Harrison came in to the team" from Brolly

Do these lads do any research at all?  :o

I think it's safe to say they we're talking about mayo not beating Kerry in the championship and Brolly was talking about Harrison being played at FB. I think some Mayo fans are only looking for excuses to have a moan.

I know. But unless maths have changed since I was at school, 1996 isn't 25 years ago  :o

I know its been said many times but jaysus Dessie Dolan is hard to listen to on so commentary. He adds nothing to the experience and runs through the same banal cliche time after time.

He said for Kerry's second goal that he'd be delighted with that finish. A yard out and keeper lying on the ground.

Agreed. Woeful. Seems a nice enough fella but not good at the commentary at all.

Expect to see him in about 20 years time still commentating on games on RTE .Once you get in the door you are there for life no matter how inept you are.
