RTÉ’s new promo for Kerry v Mayo is an absolute gem


Tony Cuddihy

The RTÉ promos department does it again for Kerry v Mayo.

You don’t need to be in love with the GAA to appreciate this absolute gem of a promo for Sunday’s All-Ireland semi-final at Croke Park between Kerry and Mayo.

This really has everything, and plays on the great rivalry between two teams who make their homes on the Wild Atlantic Way.

RTÉ broadcaster Daire O’Brien’s stirs the blood as he speaks of both counties’ ‘peculiar obsession with Gaelic Football’, of ‘complicit dolphins’, ‘horses with nappies’ and ‘the penitential loom of Croagh Patrick’ over archive footage going back decades, this is really something magnificent regardless of whom you’re supporting.

Oh, and we have some Donaghy v Brolly for good measure.

Magnificent stuff.
