With the hurling quarter-finals, the final round of the football qualifiers and the draw for the football quarter-finals all taking place at the weekend this week’s Game of Throw-Ins is a bit of a bumper one and we’re glad to say that all four members of the panel are back on board for the first time in weeks.

Unfortunately, a bit of a technical glitch for which Declan nobody is to blame means that the sound quality isn’t of the highest level this week, but as long as you’re prepared to put up with a tiny bit of an echo throughout you won’t miss anything.

Host Conor Heneghan is joined by Sean Nolan, Declan Whooley and Shane Stapleton (follow him on Twitter @shanesaint) to talk about two brilliant performances by Cork and Clare in Semple Stadium, THAT Henry Shefflin red card, whether the defeat marked the end of an era for Kilkenny and why Galway have been so flat this year.


In the football, the lads discuss all four games in the final round of the football quarter-finals, including another indifferent performance by Cork, an encouraging display by Galway, Tyrone’s cynical approach and a vintage performance at headquarters by Sean Cavanagh.

Ahead of a repeat of last year’s All-Ireland Final this comments, Jim McGuinness’ comments in the wake of victory over Laois also come in for discussion as part of our preview of four incredibly appetising football quarter-finals this weekend.

As usual, the lads also make their predictions for all the games in the football championship this weekend and remember, if you’re not doing so already, you can pit your wits against all the JOE lads and fellow JOE readers as part of the JOE GAA Prediction League in association with eircom’s Win, Lose or Draw game and you can win a pair of All-Ireland Final tickets while you’re at it.
