Who are they? Dessie Donnelly's son (I think his son anyway) from Ballycastle used to do this I think? I wasn't sure who else.

Its pretty good entertainment and at the back of it all they aren't far wrong in their analysis before and after games about everything from referees to players to managers. All levels covered minor, junior, intermediate and senior as suchhhh

Listen to one of the podcasts today, actually never listened to a podcast or in this case two blokes with funny accents talking about the games they watch ;)

Fair play to them will listen to the rest of them when I’ve a hour to spare!! Neither hiding anonymously either which is great to see
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

I find them quite hard to listen to tbh. That over exaggerated accent is cringeworthy at best.

Fair play to them, the content and the effort that has went into the podcasts has to be applauded.

Many here listen to the Saffron Voice? They getting much traction with it?
Its entertaining enough. The two lads add a bit of character and craic . The instagram account was good craic, cutting the tripe out different players and managers! They have a reasonably good knowledge of the club scene

It’s more or a laugh than anything AS SUCH. They cover some amount of games to be fair to them. I love the slagging they give the county board.

The only thing I can fault them on is them saying aghagallon is down the soldierstown road- not many aghagallon gaa men hail from that part of town! other than that thy are pretty spot on. They did a few good episodes reviewing Ulster club champo last year good content and banter

Was at Dunsilly tonight and a great night of games for the year ten schools that played .. well done to the organisers and kids/coaches .. one thing that struck me, in 50 minutes I’d ran 3.5 miles, that’s further that some senior championship games this year for 60+ minutes
