RTÉ Radio 1's new GAA series, The Marty Squad, begins this Sunday, June 7, at 6:00pm.

The hour-long show will be presented from match venues nationwide by Marty Morrissey and Paddy McKenna, with reporter Brenda Donohue also on the road. 

They will be joined by regular guests, including former Roscommon goalkeeper and Connacht Championship winner Shane Curran, former Kilkenny All-Ireland winner David Herity and Cork camogie champion Anna Geary, with listener interaction a major part of the show.

Morrissey said: "To win an All-Ireland takes a great squad of players . . . and it's the same for radio! I am delighted to be part of this new squad and to work for the first time with Paddy McKenna, and to renew acquaintances with Brenda Donohue.

"But it's not about us: it's about you, your feelings, your joy and your heartbreak as we travel together to Croke Park for the All-Ireland Finals."

McKenna said: "We have something like seven All-Ireland medals on the expert panel; Marty is Clare, Brenda is Dublin - they and their fellow countymen live, breed and expect GAA success and titles. I'm from Leitrim… so they must have decided they needed to balance all that out!"

Donohue added: "As a GAA fan myself, I want to bring that experience to the programme; the highs and lows of the drive home after a big match, the opinions from the terraces and also take a look back at the careers of some of the great GAA legends. Lucky me to be working with Marty Morrissey again – I'm sure sparks will fly!"
