RTE Commentators

Are all commentators on RTE at the stadium or are some of them sitting in Dommybrook

You'd assume George Hamilton and therefore Ronnie Whelan are there. I don't know about all of them.

Brian Kerr talks too much. Plus, his accent...

Ray Houghton said something about one of the French players that sounded like "his precision is so precise".

Has Hammy said sikth yet?

Watching Peru V Denmark now 27 minutes in and the commentators are talking about yesterday's Portugal match - I just zone them out

What's wrong with Brian Kerr's accent?

Is that anti-Dublin snobbery?

No, just anti-Brian Kerr's accent.

Brian Kerr know more about football than the rest of them put together. There's no-one who comes even close to him as an analyst.

ITV commentator today at the iceland keeper fingertip save ( note:-moments before he'd highlighted maradonas presence)
" well we've seen the hand of God, this is the hand of cod"
You just know he'd been waiting to use it...

Quality stuff from Dunphy: "I pray to live to see the day that a Nigerian plays for Ireland."

Was he was basing that off Nigeria’s shocking performance tonight or what?!

People often accuse him of losing his mind but that’s the first time I’ve witnessed it first hand.

I love Brian Kerr's boundless enthusiasm, how he mangles players names & when he comes out with stuff like:

"bang on the snot!"

"a right boomer there!"

"look at the head on him!"

"the lad with the orangey boots"

"Pirlo's throwing some shapes in the middle of the park"

Hope Ger Canning is in Russia and stays there until after the All Ireland Hurling and Football finals.
