What has David Brady achieved to have a Laochra Gael show dedicated to him.? Really scraping the bottom of the barrel with this one.
Are they confusing him with Paul Brady the Cavan footballer and World Champion handballer by any chance,

You'd know him if you listen to Off The Boil, Matt Cooper, various radio road shows etc etc. He's their go to pundit for a bit of light hearted Mayo gossip, humour, eejitry, 'poor us' whinging and whatnot. Coz you sure as $hit ain't getting anything insightful out of him.

The coin he rakes in during AI final week would probably buy you a nice bungalow in a small to medium sized Midlands town. Replay, and you're looking at a swanky penthouse in D4.

I'm no great fan of Brady but every county has one of these 'wacky' characters wheeled out by the media.

He just happens to be Mayo's. Good luck to him I suppose.

Was a good hurler, has sorta gone off grid and now lives back west of Dingle and has a unique look at life especially how he struggled with his identity post county player time.

No harm that he speaks fluent gaeilge either.

Good to see different characters and their story.
