The 5 Most Annoying Things About Watching The Championship In 2015

Unquestionably, the most annoying things in the championship so far...

5. The interviews with married couples from opposing counties during the Marty Squad

She's from Mayo, he's from Galway. They were in Salthill for the match today! Ah shtop, awful craic, wha? No dinner being made for anyone in that house, ha? You hearing me? (Taps microphone) Is this thing on?

4. Jim Gavin's interviews

Probably not as boring as in past years. For, as we saw in the aftermath of the Davey Byrne affair, Jim Gavin's interviews have become so strikingly boring, they are actually in danger of becoming interesting.

3. The absence of tight games in the hurling championship

A couple here or there. Dublin and Galway played out a oddly sleepy draw in Croke Park in late May, Limerick pipped Clare in a decent game. Aside from that we've seen a multitude of turkey shoots and any game that hasn't been a hammering has been deficient in other areas.


2. People describing low scoring games as 'games of chess' 

Each season brings a fresh round of cliches. The latest in vogue one is to describe any game featuring two blanket defences as 'a game of chess'.


Influenced by this heady talk, it is believed by many that Derry will hire Garry Kasparov as their manager for next season.


1. The ads on the RTE Player when you're trying to watch the Sunday Game highlights

We have seen many ghastly testimonies. I believe the world record is 13 ads before you've seen a ball kicked.
