Added Time: Football Championship and World Cup down to the dozen
Emmet Malone is on the line from from St Petersburg, Mary Hannigan is in the studio
The first Monday of July and the football championship is down to the last dozen teams. So is the World Cup, as kismet would have it. The weekend saw the end of some big hitters in both competitions so now it’s time to sift through the ashes.
Ian O’Riordan is in studio to tell us about Saturday night’s mega-qualifier between Kildare and Mayo in Newbridge. We break down the qualifier draw and what it means for the Super-8s and, of course, we get into do a bit of mandatory ‘whither-Mayo’ chat.
The provincial hurling finals couldn’t have been more different yesterday. Sean Moran was in Croke Park for Galway v Kilkenny and Malachy was in Thurles for Cork v Clare. Sean Joins us on the line to make sense of it all.
Emmet Malone calls in from St Petersburg to break down a World Cup that has lost Germany, Spain, Argentina and Portugal since last we talked to him. We try our best not to admit it’s all opening up for England.
