But they don't know there stuff, JC doesn't know her stuff, and it was a horror show in the world cup soccer wise.

It will be a female so mentioning anyone that is a man is a waste of time


Why does it HAVE to be a female, why not appoint people on the basis of their expertise and ability?
Role models for girls. Why not?
Female analysts and presenters are no different to their male counterparts. A lot of sports analysis is waffle anyway.

I'd be more concerned that it's another presenter from Dublin.

Jacqui Hurley? She's from Cork.

Apologies, always thought she was a Dub! I never know much about presenters!

Lyster knew his stuff. Cahill more interested in himself . Be good to see a change at least.

Think Joanne Cantrell DOES know her stuff to a large extent myself, on football anyway. She doesn't take any crap either. I'd agree that Jacqui Hurley doesn't seem very knowledgeable a lot. But it's RTE..one of those places you could easily see someone "failing upwards".. :-[

If she was from anywhere else her name would be Jacqui Hurl

Jacqui Hurley will be major improvement on Des Cahill.

A cardboard cut out with sound coming from a Nokia 3210 would be an improvement there.

The presenting gig can be any sex, but I do prefer analysts who played the game who can actually discuss first hand experiences on the field with some of the lads playing still.
Keegan and Joe fit the bill there.
Not gone on Paul Flynn.

Another major issue is co comms so Cora and Dessie Dolan need to be kept off that!
them mysterons are always killing me but im grand after a few days.sickenin aul dose all the same.

Mickey won’t be too happy with his 2 Errigal clubmen working for RTE. In fairness both are very good pundits.

Not sure how you thought that,her accent doesn't sound Dublin at all.

It's suboptimal for Joanne Cantwell. They still haven't adequately replaced Michael Lyster.

The presenter's knowledge doesn't have to be tip top. Their job is to draw quality content from the analysts. By knowing what to ask, what to persist with, and when to move on when a thread has run dry.

Are you trying to ask who the presenter is?
It's Evanne Ní Chuilinn.

Paul Flynn was asked about players getting no downtime and his answer was on a different topic altogether! Looks like he had his answers prepared, but didn't get the question he was expecting!

Is Sean Cavanagh getting paid by the word? And what he is saying is incoherent nonsense.
