Former Wexford footballer Mattie Forde, GAA writer Jackie Cahill and former Meath player Bernard Flynn join John Kenny in this week's podcast.

The weekend was dominated by football, with Croke Park hosting the first of the All-Ireland quarter finals and the last of the qualifiers.

The most high-profile clash came on Sunday afternoon as Mayo faced Cork in what turned out to be a thrilling encounter. A flurry of late goals - two for Cork - was not enough to save the 2010 champions. 

Mayo will face Kerry in the semi-finals after the Kingdom proved far too strong for Galway in another high-scoring game. We look ahead to the semi-final and speak to both managers.

Saturday saw the final round of football qualifiers and a first championship win for Monaghan in Croke Park in 84 years. They held on for an extra-time win over Kildare in the rain and set up a quarter-final meeting with All-Ireland champions Dublin. In the remaining qualifier, Armagh produced a storming second-half performance to knock out Meath and book their place in the last eight against Donegal.
