Earlier this month Jeff Stelling and Chris ‘Kammy’ Kamara, we challenged two of the most recognisable faces in soccer punditry, to travel the length and breadth of Ireland in a bid to understand how grassroots GAA clubs fuel the county championships. Their journey was documented as part of a mini-series to be released exclusively on our social channels.
Today we can reveal the duo will return for the third Sunday in September to commentate on the All-Ireland Football Final, live from Croke Park!
In the first sneak peak for ‘Jeff and Kammy’s Road to Croker’, it’s clear the pair have a lot to learn – including the correct name for GAA and how to hand pass. But who better to learn from than national treasure Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh. The legendary broadcaster will be the first to put them to task, challenging them to commentate on an U15 game in Dingle under his watchful eye.
The eight-part series will document Jeff and Kammy’s exploration of the sport and our country as they discover the communities, the rivalries, the passion, and most importantly the people that make GAA so unique. Along the way they’ll meet heroes of the game including Dick Clerkin and Jonny Cooper who will share their stories of club and county as Jeff and Kammy prepare for their mammoth task on the 17th of September.
‘Jeff and Kammy’s Road to Croker’ will air each Monday at 5pm on our YouTube, Facebook and Twitter pages, as well as here, so you have no excuses if you miss it!
