Darren Kelly and Rena Buckley look ahead to football’s biggest day as they preview the TG4 All-Ireland Football Finals in Croke Park.
Beforehand, they reflect on last week’s senior camogie decider that saw Kilkenny crowned champions; and also discuss the upcoming merger between the GPA and the WGPA;
Then attention turns to Sunday as we first talk about the TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate Football Final between Meath and Westmeath; and Cóilín Duffy gets the thoughts of Meath captain Máire O’Shaughnessy;
And then it’s the big one – the Senior Final as Dublin and Cork renew their rivalry. We hear from Cork captain Doireann O’Sullivan before Rena makes her predictions on the two matches;
And finally, we go back to camogie for Rena to select her ‘Super Six’ – four senior player of the year nominees along with premier junior, intermediate and senior winners.
