Watch the Show

  • Des Cahill introduces this week's show from Clarinbridge in Co Galway. First up is a look back at last weekend's Ulster football final between Tyrone and Monaghan with Tyrone manager Mickey Harte in the studio. 

  • We also take a look at the Leinster final between Dublin and Laois, with the Irish Independant and Kerry's Billy Keane donning the Dublin colours for the day and heading for the Hill.

  • In part two of the show we turn our attention to hurling. Clarinbridge and Galway's Alan Kerins is in the studio to talk about his backround, charity project and career with Galway so far.

  • We take a look back at the last ten years of the hurling Championship since the introduction of the back door system, starting with a look at Tipperary and Clare with comments from Davy Fitz and Brendan Cummins. Jamsie O'Connor and John McIntyre are in the studio to discuss the pros and cons of the back door system.

  • In part three we go to our match day diary with the Sunday Game's Martin Carney, who is also part of John O'Mahony's backroom team in Mayo  - and we follow him to Mayo's game against Derry last weekend.

  • A look back at the 1957 All-Ireland football Championship, when Louth took Sam home after beating Cork in the final. Dan O'Neill, Frank Lynch and Patsy Coleman talk about their experiences that year.

  • We see how our celebrity predictions are working out - with Ken Doherty, Stephen Hunt, Johnny Murtagh, Shane Horgan and Derbhal O'Rourke taking part, while we take a look ahead to the All-Ireland Championship hurling quarter-finals.
