The Mixed Reaction To Damien Duff's Punditry Debut On RTÉ

John Giles and Eamon Dunphy stayed away from the RTE panel tonight.

Damien Duff made his debut as a pundit on RTE tonight. His style tended towards the blunt rather than the flowery and the laid-back rather than the hyperactive. He was more Liam Brady than Dunphy.
