For the fans, a selection of Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh classics compiled from the airwaves:

…and Brian Dooher is down injured. And while he is, I’ll tell ye a little story. I was in Times Square in New York last week and I was missing the Championship back home. So I approached a news stand and I said “I suppose ye wouldn’t have the Kerryman would ye?” To which, the Egyptian behind the counter turned to me and he said “do you want the North Kerry edition or the South Kerry edition”… he had both… so I bought both. And Dooher is back on his feet…

“Anthony Lynch the Cork corner back will be the last person to let you down—his people are undertakers”

“I saw a few Sligo people at Mass in Gardiner Street this morning and the omens seem to be good for them. The priest was wearing the same colours as the Sligo jersey! 40 yards out on the Hogan stand side of the field Ciaran Whelan goes on a rampage, it’s a goal. So much for religion”

“Colin Corkery on the 45 lets go with the right boot. It’s over the bar. This man shouldn’t be playing football. He’s made an almost Lazarus-like recovery from a heart condition. Lazarus was a great man but he couldn’t kick points like Colin Corkery”

“1–5 to 0–8. Well, from Lapland to the Antarctic that’s level scores in any man’s language”

“Pat Fox has it on his hurl and is motoring well now… but here comes Joe Rabbitte hot on his tail… I’ve seen it all now, a Rabbitte chasing a Fox around Croke Park”

“I see John O’Donnell dispensing water on the sideline. Tipperary, sponsored by a water company, Cork sponsored by a tae company. I wonder will they meet later for afternoon tae

“Teddy looks at the ball, the ball looks at Teddy”

“Danny The Yank Culloty. He came down from the mountains and hasn’t he done well”

“He grabs the sliotar, he’s on the 50… he’s on the 40… he’s on the 30… he’s on the ground”

“In the first half they played with the wind. In the second half they played with the ball”

“He kicks the ball lán san aer, could’ve been a goal, could’ve been a point… it went wide”

“Stephen Byrne with the puck out for Offaly… Stephen, one of 12… all but one are here today, the one that’s missing is Mary, she’s at home minding the house… and the ball is dropping i lár na bpairce…”

“Pat Fox out to the forty and grabs the sliotar. I bought a dog from his father last week. Fox turns and sprints for goal. The dog ran a great race last Tuesday in Limerick. Fox to the 21 fires a shot, it goes to the left and wide… and the dog lost as well”

“Sean Óg Ó Hailpín… his father’s from Fermanagh, his mother’s from Fiji, neither a hurling stronghold”

“Teddy McCarthy to John McCarthy, no relation, John McCarthy back to Teddy McCarthy, still no relation”
