Except Tom Parson's gorgeous hair.

I had hair like that once. Must get the wedding album back out for the look.
I meant to ask you Jinxy. What's the story with hair in Meath?

 Mickey Burke is still playing for Meath? In the forwards? In his defence I'd say he is from Mayo refugee stock with a name like that. Mayo Burkes can play ball too and can be hairy and a bit thorny as well.
Yer gone and all that and only got a glimpse of Tyrone or some game, but I could have sworn I saw a Meath player with a bun. What is going on there? That cant be right. Surely there are enough skulling gates in the county to nip that kind of thing in the bud?

This is a perfect example of a standard-issue championship haircut.
Zero maintenance and zero wind-resistance.
We need to get back to this.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

What about Championship beards, the Rossie goalie was very well groomed?

So - This is a summary of RTE, The National Broadcaster's performance yesterday.
1 - Put soccer on HD on RTE1 and a crucial hurling championship match on non HD.
2 - Went to a break for news and a lengthy series of advertisements  at half time during the Connaught final
3 - Blocked the signal from users in the north for The Sunday Game last night.

Not a great performance overall.  No wonder we need SKY.

I live in the north. I watched the hurling on RTE 1 HD. Not sure why there was soccer on yours.
I was able to watch the Sunday Game.

I think the problem only occurred if you access RTE through the likes of Sky.

I didn’t think there was an RTE1 HD. Don’t think there is on Sky anyway

I access RTE through the aerial. There definitely is RTE 1 HD.

You could both be right.
RTÉ Saorview from Clermont Cairn is indeed HD. GFA RTÉ from NI transmitters is not HD, as far as I know.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Sky is the problem here. It was sky who blocked the programme
The hurling was on HD yesterday
Lesson: don’t rely on Sky for your GAA coverage on RTE. If you can, get an aerial and Saorview box or enabled TV. Aerial set up for about £150/200 and there will be no ‘blue screening’ of GAA and champions league

If you're paying for a SKY subscription, and you don't have SKY sports, you would want your head examined.
Just get a freeview box and you'll have everything you need.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

I think there are parts where sky is the only way to access RTE. No saorview signal.
