We’d pay good money to get these lads and Cork’s O’Donovan brothers into a room together, on camera, and just let them chat away.
It was a tough afternoon for Galway hurling supporters. They lost by one point in the All Ireland semi-final face-off against Tipperary.

Before the match, these Galway lads were interviewed by RTE about their county’s chances, and how they’ll keep on top of formidable Tipperary forward, Seamus Callanan.
The boys thought that Daithi Burke had the specialised training to take Callanan down.

Says one: “Daithi Burke has been out on the farm, throwing heifers over gates. He’s strong as an ox.”
As one commenter on Twitter put it:
@RTEsport omg this is gas-only Ireland??

…but it wasn’t enough in the end.
Hard luck, lads.
