Marty Morrissey and Michael Lyster engaged in a war of words over their driving ability at the launch of GAAGO in RTE studios in Donnybrook yesterday.
We asked Marty the 64,000 dollar question, who would he employ as his getaway driver should he, in a fit of either pique or peckishness, decide to nab a snack box from Enzo's food emporium in Ennis (a chipper which Marty ensures us is one of the Munster's finest.) When we proffered Michael Lyster as a potential accomplice, Marty demurred with remarkable certitude.
Not a hope about Michael, because he'll crash the car at the top of Abbey Street. We'll only get as far as the square.
Marty eventually plumped for Joanne Cantwell as the ideal getaway driver in those circumstances.
Somewhat startled by this revelation, we cornered Lyster for a response. He was loitering by the free sandwiches, chatting amiably with Sean Moran of the Irish Times.
Well, when Marty is on the motorway, there's usually a line of about 50 cop cars on the road behind him. So I think for him to accuse me of being a bad driver, we have a pot-kettle situation going on.
In the course of our interview, Marty also explained the origins of the famous photograph above, the one in which he looks disconcertingtly youthful. Intriguingly, the game at which photo was taken was reffed by future All-Ireland winner Ollie Baker.
