Pat Spillane talking about Tinder is peak Irish dad banter

"I think all you're doing, is looking to trend on Twitter every single weekend."

However, I don't think anyone expected the Kerryman to even know what Tinder was, never mind reference it on live TV during The Sunday Game.

"My love-in with the Ulster championship continues - the best three matches we got in this year's championship have come out of the Ulster championship.

"Do you know what I was thinking? If Tinder did provincial champions, I would be swiping right to Ulster."

Joanne Cantwell had a sneaky suspicion that Spillane might be orchestrating these phrases in advance, in order to achieve notoriety online.

"I think all you're doing, is looking to trend on Twitter every single weekend."

"I'm not on Twitter," replied Spillane.

"Oh I think you will find that you are," Cantwell corrected, referring to the numerous times one of his phrases or heated debates has gone viral.

It's hard to beat a good dad-joke, particularly when it's an Irish dad, although it's always worse when it's your own father who is making them, as poor Cara Spillane will tell you.

The Kerry legend may not have a Twitter account, but his daughter certainly does, and she feels that she maybe had a part to play, in inspiring her father's Tinder anecdote.
