This is gold

“The poor man got an awful killing in this incident.”

Pat Spillane’s place on The Sunday Game panel divides opinion these days but he was some operator back in the ’90s.

The Kerryman was at the peak of his powers when Michael Lyster asked him to talk the viewers through the infamous brawl between Mayo and Meath in the All-Ireland Final replay.

It’s genuinely one of the funniest sequences of television you’ll see anywhere, hit play and enjoy.
