    Totally agree with that one. I've been going to see them since the year dot, and went to see us getting hockeyed year in year out, and now have problems getting tickets to home matches, and the bandwagon jumping drives me scatty!

    Same with Mairead. For a girl a grew up in Finglas i doubt she knew what a rugby ball looked like up until a few years ago.

    Have to disagree with you both there, while I do see the point you are trying to make it's not very fair to say that just because you haven't grown up with a sport that you cant learn to develop an interest in it.

    I think it's a positive thing that there is such a growing popularity in rugby and most sports.

    Yes there are the fans that go to every game, no matter how big and small, and they should be on a ticket database to ensure tickets first. A few friends are season ticket holders with Munster so they would get tickets for most games and they go to them, whenever and wherever.

    I grew up not knowing anything about cricket, but living in the Middle East for years I have now a huge interest in it and have been to a few internationals in Dublin, should I have not been allowed??

    We all have the right to learn, develop and follow new hobbies and sports.

    For years we've listened to ray going on about over taxation and not enough money for different services, now he's singing the praise of banks letting people skate on hundreds of thousands of euro of debt!! Where does the genius think the money is going to come from?

    Hope if remembers that next time he's shouting across the table at a politician that there's not enough money for mental health services or tackling obesity, populist moron.

    Rays Three little words, Its my home...and then he starts crying. Wonder if he was bullied at school.

    I love the growing popularity of Rugby, what drives me crazy is people only jumping on board for the internationals and leaving the true fans out of the picture for tickets n stuff, and she's one of them. I'm an Ireland and then a Leinster fan. Always have been, and been to matches that were less than half full, singing The Fields of Atenry to make up the numbers, and even local matches here in the Netherlands I go to, just to support the local rubbish team, and people like Mairead don't do ground roots, and that's part of the my issue (if that makes sense)

    They have the same opportunity to get tickets as you. It's it their fault if they get them before you? What do you suggest should be done to accommodate true fans? An application form with photographic evidence and references?

    I think clappyhappy has stated best in terms of developing new interests and sports.

    Tbf, the guy on now saying his missus was 'devo' not to meet Drico sounds like an utter cúnt…

    Thank god someone else heard the 'Devo' thing. I have never heard an adult say that except mockingly of D4 types.
    I had a strange feeling about that interview, I thought for a second that it was going to turn into a physical realisation of the now famous 'Laminate' list. :eek::D

    Well the callers aren't footing the bill for the calls, that's for sure.

    The call dropped for the girl in Japan, wouldn't make better sense to get the quiz over and done with than having them hanging on the line for an ad break.. just thought it was sloppy

    The problem is that he is making sugar his number one enemy but I think an awful lot of the time he's confusing correlation with causation.

    Obese people are probably more likely to consume fizzy drinks but the cause of their obesity is not the fizzy drink, it's their eating habits and the fact that they consume more than the burn off.

    You'd swear sugar was worse than crack the way he was talking.

    It is an addiction all the same, and the cause of all sorts of problems like diabetes, insulin resistance and inflammation.It was ok years ago when kids where outside more but nowadays they're stuck on the net,ps4 etc and the sugar is turning to fat.

    The amount of sugar in products is a disgrace.

    the programme on channel 4 food unwrapped is good at showing the crap no just sugar that goes into food and the way foods are produced

    I've stopped listening to the first hour of the show (listen to Foley on 98fm) and I have to say it makes the rest of the Darcy show a lot more enjoyable. Darcy tends to do all his pontificating in that first hour

    Really enjoyed the Brian O'Driscoll thing today, couldn't help but smile when yer wan was like "OMG Brian..." :pac:

    Also thought the segment on "new Irish" was fantastic, especially Allison Curtis' contributions. I had no idea she wasn't a citizen until this morning. Really good discussion. :)

    Agree with this. We generally don't turn the radio on in the office until 9:20 now, just so we can miss the misery-fest that is the morning papers. Without that, everything generally seems a lot more cheerful.

    I only heard the German girl and a bit of Allison. The German's accent was hilarious but she was quite awkward, Ray was struggling to get a decent answer out of her. A case of classic German efficiency, she was answering the questions he asked and that was it.

    I hate it when people are surprised by famous people. Makes for such cringy awkward tv/radio. After the initial hello theres usually a long awkward silence and then both start talking at once. When it happens on darcys show hes usually laughing away in the background. Toe-curling stuff.

    Paul McCloone imitating/pulling the piss out of Darcy tonight made me smile. Going back a few pages here when the discussion was what other presenters thought of Darcy. It's like that old Friends episode where Chandler finds out other people in the office "do him" :)

    My sister knows her husband through work and what they have gone through no one ever should. I thought she was great considering the hardship they have endured. Best wishes to her and her family.

    Tbh, the German girl was the only contributor I heard, and I thought she was great too. For once, Ray's obsession with kids led to a genuinely moving and interesting piece of radio.

    What did "Hi i'm Paul McLoone with Teenage Kicks" say about Dr Raymond D'Arcy?

    Oh and great to hear the only man whose child might keep them awake in Ireland had a good nights sleep with Tom sleeping. God bless you Ray you're the only man who might get a bad nights sleep.

    Good man Ray, making a total bollix of the quiz yet again. Why take a commercial break when you have 2 people from around the world on the line?

    Maybe they go to an ad break so that they can test the lines while the 2 contestants are on?

    More like he doesn't know what he's doing.
    But...if you happen to be related to the great man, then maybe you're right.
