Mikey Stafford and Rory O'Neill are joined by Oisín McConville, Brendan Cummins and Marty Morrissey to look ahead to the weekend's action.

But first there is time to quiz Oisín on pitch dimensions and which grounds he considered 'tight' - Dr Hyde Park is up there, as usual, even though the pitch is bigger than Croke Park.

Oisín gives us his take on a fascinating Ulster SFC semi-final between Derry and Monaghan, which he considers so tight it may go to penalties. It's 13 years since they have met in Championship and the lads are struggling to agree on how it's going to go.

Oisín has issues with the Tailteann Cup's organisation on a North-South basis this year, as we await the results of Westmeath and Tipperary's provincial semi-finals, to see how many teams are in Monday's draw on Morning Ireland.


Brendan Cummins joins us for the first time this year following his Tipperary Under-20 side's defeat at hands of Limerick in the Munster final and gives his take on the 'morally wrong' rule that precludes Under-20s from playing with their age grade if tey play senior championship also.

Marty thinks Limerick's game with Clare takes on a new dimension following the arrest and questioing of a Liemrick player in the city on Monday morning, with John Kiely likely to want a convincing display from his side.

Clare are a coming team though and Rory believes, in Conor Cleary and Rory Hayes, they have the defenders to handle Limerick's lethal full-forward line.

Brendan believes Waterford will have too much for Cork but has questions about how Liam Cahill's side will handle the favourites tag as we await the Déise performance to announce their arrival in this summer's championship.

Dublin are a win away from a Leinster final, unfortunately they're facing a stinging Kilkenny at home before a trip to Galway to face Shefflin's coming side. None of the lads can see anything but a Kilkenny win on Saturday evening.
