GAA legend Pat Spillane has announced he will be retiring from his role as a pundit at RTÉ after the upcoming All-Ireland football final.
The former Kerry star made the news ahead of Saturday’s All-Ireland semi-final between Galway and Derry. Spillane, who won eight All-Ireland titles during an illustrious green and gold career, will be absent from our television screens after this year’s football decision on July 24.
However, you can still read Pat Spillane in The Sunday World and on Independent.ie.
“I made a resolution a few months ago that this would be my final year working on The Sunday Game,” Spillane said.
“It’s my last All Ireland semi-final to cover and in two weeks my last appearance will be the All Ireland final. I had 30 great years. 30 years in any gig is a long time but I won’t walk away entirely, I’ll still write in The Sunday World.
“Every dog has his day. I had a great time. I left with no regrets but many great memories. Maybe the icing on the cake would be that I leave The Sunday Game at the same time as Sam Maguire, Returning to Kerry.”
