RTE Set To Continue Use Of New GAA Pundits With Two Additions To Sunday's Schedule

RTE Set To Continue Use Of New GAA Pundits With Two Additions To Sunday's Schedule
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

RTE's GAA coverage will continue to recruit new faces for punditry roles with two additions to this weekend's schedule.

The national broadcaster will televise Mayo vs Meath from Croke Park at 2 pm on Sunday as well as Kerry vs Donegal at 4 pm. At 9.30 pm the Sunday Game highlights programme will air and both programmes will feature changes.

For the live broadcast, Monaghan footballer and 2018 All-Star Conor McManus will join Colm O'Rourke and Kevin McStay. Marty Morrissey and Oisin McConville will be the commentary team for the first game while Ger Canning and Dessie Dolan take over for the second.

For the highlights programme, former Kerry manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice will join Ciaran Whelan and Tomás Ó Sé to review all the weekend's Super 8s action. Fitzmaurice steered Kerry to an All-Ireland title in 2014 but left the job last year after their quarter-final exit.

It comes after RTE's new approach has proved popular. In recent times they extended their punditry panel to recruit the likes of Derek McGrath, Brid Stack and include one-off guest appearances, such as referee Barry Kelly, former Monaghan manager Malachy O'Rourke and Antrim hurler Neil McManus.
