GAA Hour: How to mark Andy Moran; Niall Sludden the ‘monster’; Chrissy McKaigue on the line

Unbelievable weekend of football picked apart by Colm Parkinson, Cian Ward and Conán Doherty

Mayo have found a forward.

He’s won a Sigerson Cup medal.

He’s won a couple of club championship medals.

He’s even claimed a few Connacht titles.

They’ve found a forward – a 33-year-old wonder – from Ballaghaderreen who goes by the name of Andy Moran.

Mayo are back from their Pat Spillane-declared death and it just so happens that it was Kerry who felt the full force of their backlash. At the front of it all was Andy Moran.

Poor Mark Griffin had a torrid time trying to keep tabs on the forward but the lads on The GAA Hour think they’ve figured out the best way to keep Moran quiet – at least quieter than normal.

On top of that, there’s some gushing over Slaughtneil’s Chrissy McKaigue – who joins us on the line – after a performance that had some of us believing in magic again.

The longest-serving inter-county footballer, Mark Breheny, also joins us.

And Niall Sludden… holy Christ. Listen to it all below.
