It might be possible to find someone who didn’t like Larry Gogan, but it would take one hell of a search to identify them. Pick any year out of the half a century he worked for RTE, and you’d find the same Larry. Smiling. Unpompous. And wonderfully UNSURE of himself.

When I took my seat in the stand in Nowlan Park yesterday, near the 45-metre line, I found myself beside a nice man from Clara. He was a quiet fella, who said very little, until he felt like making a point or asking a question. When Limerick made their final substitution in the 69th minute, the gentleman asked me who was the Limerick player being introduced. ‘Gearoid Hegarty,’ I said. ‘Jeez,’ he replied with an audible groan.
