SportsJOE presents The Great Debate

There are debates and then there are the most divisive topics in Irish sport being argued by the most opinionated personalties in Irish media.

On November 28, SportsJOE is bringing you The Great Debate. Different sports, different discussion points and you decide the winner.


Across GAA, rugby and more, some of the biggest names in sports media will battle it out to finally settle the most pressing matters.

The topics:

  • Dublin GAA has an unfair advantage
  • The Irish Rugby team are celebrity losers
  • VAR should be scrapped

The personalties putting forward the debate:

  • Joe Brolly v Colm Parkinson
  • Ewan MacKenna v Eddie O'Sullivan
  • Dion Fanning v Ken Early

And more to be announced.

Tickets here.


Brolly and Wooly are two of the most influential GAA pundits with two very different viewpoints when it comes to the perceived advantage afforded to the Dublin senior football team.

Ewan MacKenna has been one of the most divisive journalists in rugby whilst Eddie O'Sullivan's straight-talking on live television coverage earned him plaudits and critics alike.

Dion Fanning and Ken Early are two of the foremost football journalists in the UK and Ireland and VAR isn't just the foremost topic in football right now, it's the only one.

On Thursday 28 November, the pundits will come face to face to debate the matter and you will decide who wins. The event will take place in The Mansion House in Dublin with tickets limited and already being snapped up so don't miss out and get yours below.
