Sunday evening marked a momentous milestone in Dublin, GAA and indeed world broadcasting history. After 64 years, Seán Óg has put away his microphone for the last time. His Sunday night GAA results roundup has been running since 1948 – a world record in sports broadcasting. Over these years, long before we had the Internet or Twitter, his unique voice brought the name of every parish in Ireland to national and world attention as he called the results to his listners – a sort of Shipping Forcast for lovers of Gealic Games across the globe. Being a former Dublin hurler, it’s entirely fitting that his final week at the mic’ saw his beloved Dubs regain their long-overdue stature having just lifted the NHL Div1 trophy. We know that everyone in Cuala wishes Seán many more years of happy and healthy retirement.
