The blonde hair and extra weight doesn't suit Gráinne Seoige.

To be fair its miles better without Grainne Ni Seoige. That woman may be pretty looking but there's more warmth and personality in an iceberg. At least Jackie Hurley makes it watchable alongside that gombeen Des Cahill

could it be that's she actually interest and loved getting the job for the jobs sake rather than the exposure?
she's a hell of a lot better TV  presenter than des . Ive seem young curate organize better Quizzes . he was explaining still expalaing the rules with 10 seconds gone on the clock,
only a bit of crack I know but still painful to watch him.
love him on the radio though

Didn't watch it but not surprised if Jacqui Hurley did a good job. she seems a decent sort and is a genuine sports fan.

Des doing the questions for that quiz was absolutely bloody awful.

I see the viewers quiz is limited to residents of the 26 Counties only.  What a shame for a 32 County organisation.  Both GAA and RTÉ.

Probably limited to RTE licence holders as well...does RTE claim to serve 32 counties though?

Ulster and the north clearly doesn’t matter to RTE.

Between the opening sequences on TSG and TG4’s GAA coverage, there’s only a split second of a ball being kicked in a Down v Monaghan match. Nothing else from an Ulster team.

In what way is RTE a 32 county organisation? Where are you getting that from?

I’d agree with Benny though the big issues for the GAA are the bi-annual pratfest that is Up For The Match and the title sequences of The Sunday Game. Surely another Citizen’s Assembly is in the offing?

The competition is restricted to the 26 counties because of differences in the laws North & South. Now, if we had a functioning executive in NI we could align them but unfortunately we don't. So it has nothing to do with being partitionist and everything to do with RTÉ protecting themselves from a potential court case.

Interesting that it seems to be a specific bug bearer for SF members on twitter. Niall O'Donaigle (Not sure of spelling but Senator from Belfast) being number one I think.....

The Irish Times had 21 highlights of the season and there wasn't one featuring a Galway player.

Theses competitions are a mugs game, money grabbing opportunity for RTÉ.

When I read this two weeks ago I raised my eyebrows as I quite like Gráinne. I saw a bit of last Saturday's show and I agree completely. Jacqui actually shows up how banal and useless Des is.

I never want to be in the company of anyone ever who watch these type of gobshite shows.
