Saturday’s second International Rules test in Croke Park marks the end of a broadcasting era as Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh commentates on his last live match on RTÉ Radio.

The legendary Gaelic Games commentator announced in September that he is retiring, and will man the microphone for his final commentary as Ireland look to overcome a seven-point deficit from the first test in Limerick. Micheál will be joined in the commentary box by RTÉ analyst Bernard Flynn.

Micheál’s final commentary will be part of Saturday Sport Extra from 7pm to 9pm on RTÉ Radio 1. The programme, hosted by John Kenny, is available on all wavelengths, and is also available worldwide on www.rte.ie/sport.
