PODCAST: SportsDaz Football (Thursday, 28th July 2022)

Darren Kelly and Niamh Kindlon present the magazine show previewing the TG4 All-Ireland Football Finals.


  • 0:00 – Latest News
  • 25:50 – Preview – Antrim vs Fermanagh (TG4 Junior Final)
  • 44:10 – Preview – Laois vs Wexford (TG4 Intermediate Final)
  • 1:03:50 – Preview – Meath vs Kerry (TG4 Senior Final)

We touch on the men’s final shoot-out between Kerry and Galway, and some managerial appointments around the country.  We ask why local GAA boards can’t leave their schedules free for one day when their county are in an LGFA Final in Croke Park, we talk referees, Aisling McCarthy is an Aussie, Brian Noonan stepping down in Longford and more.

It’s a four-parter today starting with the TG4 All-Ireland Junior Football Final.  Antrim and Fermanagh have become fierce rivals recently and while the Saffrons will be favourites, the Erne County can’t be ruled out.  We look at what to expect in this Ulster derby who meet for the fourth time this year.

Wexford have been making a habit of breaking Laois hearts and if they can do it for a third consecutive time, they’ll finally get their hands on silverware following semi-final wins in last year’s championship and this year’s Leinster campaign.   The Slaneysiders have developed a more consistent approach but Laois are dangerous when on form as shown in this year’s Division Two.

Then, it’s on to the senior final between Meath and Kerry.  We’ve marvelled at the Meath story over the last two years but are Kerry about to write their own tale of success.  History will be made as first time champs the Royals go for back-to-back crowns against the Kingdom seeking to take back their throne after 29 years and claim top spot on the Roll of Honour with 12 wins.

  • The final episode of this season of SPORTSDAZ FOOTBALL takes place next Wednesday.
  • We’ll also have a special episode of THE THIRD HALF on Monday
