Watch: Ted Walsh Talks A Lot Of Nonsense About Irish Football Vs Irish Rugby
By PJ Browne Updated

For the next five weeks on RTÉ, starting tonight, the public will have a chance to select Ireland's Greatest Sporting Moment between 1962 - 2012.

RTÉ say the starting point of was selected as it was the year of Ireland's first sporting broadcast. 2012 was selected to 'ensure that there is enough distance to ensure the moment stands the test of time.' (Or they just didn't want a Conor McGregor moment winning.)

Ahead of tonight's show, a clip has been released of Ted Walsh and Brian Kerr debating what merits success in rugby and football.

Kerr is a big fan of Damien Duff's bow after scoring against Saudi Arabia at the 2002 World Cup. "But we got beat, though," argues Walsh about that tournament.

Walsh favours Ireland's Grand Slam success in the Six Nations. "We won nothing in the soccer. I mean rugby lads won the Grand Slam," says the trainer. "That's only six teams," counters Kerr.

"They don't be too far away, they would be a lot closer than the soccer lads anyway," states Walsh, ignoring that a quarter-final is the furthest Ireland has ever been at a football or rugby world cup.

After Kerr points out only '10 or 12 teams' would have a chance of winning the Rugby World Cup - it's really far less - Walsh retorts that, "Nah, I think the soccer gets away with murder."

Tonight's show should be an interesting one: it features Joe Brolly, Eamon Dunphy and Sonia O'Sullivan discussing the best Irish sporting moment of the 80s.
