Today's Liveline episode, hosted by Colm Ó Mongáin, featured some Leinster - Munster rivalry related issues in the wake of former's Champions Cup final defeat to La Rochelle.
Listeners from both provinces called into the show, with certain Leinster fans complaining about Munster fans supporting La Rochelle rather than backing their Irish brethren.
"I was very disappointed to hear but not surprised that there were Munster supporters shouting for La Rochelle at the game," said the first caller.
"I'm a bit disappointed. Now in fairness ROG was a wonderful player for Munster and he's a wonderful coach.
"It's disappointing because I've supported Munster before Leinster became good. Now I was always a Leinster supporter, a few of us used to go up to Donnybrook when there's be only 6 or 7 thousand of us there."
However, one Munster caller was quick to point out that it was not an Irish rivalry issue, but Munster fans getting behind their beloved Ronan O'Gara as head coach of La Rochelle.
"I shouted for Ronan O'Gara's team.... it wasn't about the Irish or the French or anything like that. I just shouted for Ronan O'Gara's team and his management career...... I'm sure there's Leinster fans who would never shout for Munster."

Colm Ó Mongáin told his own anecdote about a ticked off Leinster fan who had witnessed Munster fans at the game in La Rochelle gear, while another caller shared an anecdote from 2009, where Munster supporters at Murrayfield shouted for Leicester in the Heineken Cup final.
"On numerous occasions I've heard Munster supporters supporting anybody but Leinster going back to the Heineken Cup final over in Edinburgh when Munster were at their height.
"A lot of lads had bought their tickets in the hope that Munster would be in the final but as it transpired it was Leinster. But they were supporting Leicester at the match.
On Twitter, most commenters were rightly calling out those complaining for their pettiness and the silliness of the argument.
