“They Help Make Radio Great”


OTBGer Gilroy paid tribute to the Off The Ball crew, including Eoin McDevitt, pictured interviewing Ireland’s soccer manager Giovanni Trapattoni above, after their resignation from the Newstalk show this afternoon. Just after the show started at 7pm, he said:

 “All right, a very good evening to you.You’re welcome to tonight’s Off The Ball. First things first. We didn’t really expect to be here tonight but we are. That’s because the lads made a pitch to start the show every night at 6pm. Station management couldn’t accommodate that and the lads have decided to resign.
“All I really want to say about this now is that we’re going to miss our friends: Ken, Eoin, Mark, Simon and Murph are an amazing group of people to work with. They’ve helped change how sport is talked about in Ireland forever. They make great radio and they help make radio great. We’re all going to miss them and we wish them the very best of luck in the future.”
