WATCH: Rare moment as the BBC ‘finally’ preview the All-Ireland final and discuss the Mayo curse

Well said.

The BBC has a history of championing Irish broadcasters – the names of Terry Wogan, Graham Norton and Dave Allen come to mind – but in the sporting domain, Conor McNamara has earned a very impressive reputation behind the mic.

The BBC Radio 5 live & Match Of The Day commentator has been a busy man this week, he was covering Leicester City’s opening day Champions League win against Club Bruges in Belgium, but it seems that he still has some time to promote the All-Ireland football final.

Aside from previewing the meeting between Dublin and Mayo, McNamara articulately discusses the famous ‘Mayo curse’ with host Karin Giannone.

It’s nice to see that after 15 years of working at the Beeb, the broadcaster ‘finally’ gets to chat about GAA. Take a look.
