  1. The day three pod is an amazing listen.

    The interview with Jimmy Gleason is fascinating and a real insight for why these matches are so important. For those of us who live overseas it embodies the importance of the GAA and Irish connections abroad for all of us who are overseas. For whatever reason we find ourselves in far flung corners of the world but home is always home. It is evident in Jimmys interview that even for him as first generation American that connections to home were inherited from this parents. It really was a very special interview. It’s easy to consider this a weekend in the calendar but it’s much more than that. The connections thought the GAA run deeper. I can remember many’s a night trying to source coverage, hoping for good internet, hoping some channel would show it, half time phone calls home. The GAA would do well to consider carefully before changing it.

    And yes, I am aware that you could argue there are many other deserving cities worldwide too, I get that totally but London and New York I guess have a huge place in irish immigration history. To clarify I am also based on a different continent to both those cities.

    Bit jealous of everyone in New York and definitely feeling a little homesick.

    Superb coverage John and co.

  2. Not a bit jealous lol was there in 2014 with the late great Kieran Cawley who had an encylopadiec knowldege of Mayo football and was a gentleman too boot, and a gang from North Mayo/Erris. Enjoy the trip
