Can t believe some are taking this lightly. Don t think this is an opportunity to be funny.

A few days ago I wanted to break his mouth - now I m almost in tears at what he s done. This is not a gesture. It is something most people would only do for family. And even then many could not. Sincerely hope it is successful for the recipient.

And I ll think twice about clobbering Joe when I see him.

+1 Moysider .  This man has made my blood boil so much so much over the past few years , jesus i don't think i have had a good word to say about the man,  however what can you say  when you read what he has done . Inspirational . I'm trying to imagine would i be able to do what Joe has just done and truth be told  i don't think I'd be brave enough .

A wonderful gesture by Joe, shows the quality of the man as a human being.

I reserve the right to question his qualities as a Gaelic football analyst, as they are very separate.

Aye, you have to hand it to the fecker, wouldnt have agreed with much of what he has said (or mostly the way he has gone about it) but this has made that pale into insignificance.

Well done Joe

That's just brilliant. Fair play to him. Of course he is still going to annoy the shite out of me on TSG, as he obviously sets out to do, but really who cares about that stuff in the long run?

The long run is what sort of a man you are when you shut the door behind you at home, and Brolly is obviously someone you can rely on as friend and as a human being.

Well done Joe, and best wishes to the Finnegan lad.

Shane couldnt pass urine. He peed for the first time in many years yesterday.


Brolly spent a lifetime taking the piss out of people on TV. Now he's taken it to a new level.

Before anyone starts, it's a joyous occasion.

Joe yer a crazy hoor !!

While Joe is a good bit mischevious in his media forays, there are always at least two perspectives to everything and Joe just gives his.

What Joe has done here is humbling. He has shown true courage and loyalty - two words that are the ultimate mantra and ethos in the Dungiven plateau region!

Blow Joe , yer a credit to yer family, friends, clubs, Dungiven, County, Ireland and in my opinion - the GAA and all that is great about our association as if not for the football club link, young Finnegan might still be waiting - instead he found a friend and donor.

Fair play Joe- speedy recovery so you can get back to Mayobashing asap !! ;)

An absolute hero. Okay, one part of his life is putting across his views on a game on national tv, naturally hes going to court controversy, but look at the all round picture; one of the most successful barristers in Ireland, a great county player, a superb club player with incredible longevity (played til 42 I think?), fully involved in the club as a coach, always willing to support any event hes asked to, great family man, I could go on, but theres enough there to call him an example to everyone. The only problem is, its very hard to look at this objectively whenever you're within earshot of him  ;D

+1 on all fronts. Fair play Joe.

Fair play to Brolly - a selfless act and a huge personal sacrifice.
It doesn't change my opinion of him as a disgrace of a "football analyst" in any way though.

Ah here, Joe's been chatting shite for 20 years, his kidney's get a handy enough time of it.

In fairness though a sound gesture, what are the odds of getting a donor compatible from outside your family? Anybody know?
