Just tuned in this morning.
He lists the items coming up, and one of the delights that he promises us is a preview of the All-Ireland final. So far so good. But then he adds that the preview will be done by politicians from Mayo and Dublin. In what way is that informative? I have no idea who the individual politicians are but I would hazard a guess that one of them is Michael Ring. I will be tuning out at the appropriate time.

If you're lucky you might get senators Mulhern and Noone as they won't be able to attend the actual final.

Sean is very conservative and he's a political wonk. The All-Ireland is an opportunity to give free soft-focus coverage to politicians he approves of.

He should get a slap on the wrist for this. Needless to say, he won't.

It'll be what you call a soft interview. Or waffle with cringe inducing parochialism.

There's nothing Seán Ó'Rourke likes more than GAA. He could spend hours shootin' the breeze about it. RTÉ love it 'cos de peepil love it, seemingly. . . Even on "News" shows the peepil have to get it in large doses . . .

Kenny's 'address to Mayo' yesterday was very inappropriate for the leader of a country.

Even after 100 years in the Dail, he still hasn't figured out he's not just a Castlebar councillor.

I can't wait for Bono's preview of the Chelsea v Liverpool match later.

Bono's a Monaco supporter, probably. Last time a big UEFA champions' league game was played there, camera kept going to Bono in the front row of a box over the halfway line. That's where he lives a fair bit of the year, and doubtless there's a tax efficiency there to be exploited. Would be churlish not to!

It is with extreme pleasure that I will be missing the all Ireland GAA football final

Sean O'Rourke is the best broadcaster in the country.
I heard him drag Mary Lou over the coals yesterday, he was fantastic.

To be the best he'd have to be like that with all politicians and he isn't.
