Just channel surfing now, and came across this, is it back?
I think this particular show is covering the comórtas but I'd love to see them back on Friday nights covering the championship.
Was a great show imo.

I believe it is back every Friday evening. It is a great show. Someone got it badly wrong cutting it in the first place. RTE and TV3 then didn't have the vision to bring something similar out on a Friday night.

I won't be tuning into it if it is an incarnation of the previous editions ....

Good show for a bit of GAA discussion prior to a championship weekend, missed it when it was axed.

If O Cinneide is looking for topics to discuss - why not discuss the topics on this forum? Instead of continually spewing out political correctness for fear of ruffling a few feathers.

Easy for nameless keyboarders to ruffle feathers!

Public personalities nowadays generally have to advocate a progressive politically correct agenda even though they might privately disagree.
Like going against the church 50 years ago. It's not worth the trouble to say what you really think.

Definitely think tg4 are missing a trick here.
There is a demand at present for more tv programmes about gaa.
Rte is poor. Particularly a lower league team bearly gets a mention. They are been tested this year with the tailtean Cup to see if they are going to live up to what they promised

There is no shortage of topics he can discuss and question. Not least the need for more sense about match venues, locations and times. You can bet your bottom dollar Joe Brolly would be a far better presenter if he could labhair as Gaeilge.

2 follow up questions.

What is not politically correct about speaking about 'venues, locations and times'?

What 'politcal correctness' has Ó Cinnéide been 'spewing'?

Thankfully we only have to listen to Joe in one language. :) The other pundits wouldn't get a word in if he was presenting. Bheadh deireadh tobann le Seo Spóirt dá mbeadh Joe in-ann Gaeilge a labhairt.
Brolly has some good elements and I applaud him for what he's said and done in some cases. However, he's also wildly inconsistent, exaggerates massively, makes personal jibes and clearly has an axe to grind against certain teams and players. He lets this cloud any objective analysis in many instances.
