Thanks to John from The Newish Journalism, who says “The man commentating wih such boundless enthusiasm is Eddie Moroney, a lorry driver for the Tipperary Co-Op creamery in Tipperary town. The match he is connentating on is the 1994 Tipperary U-21 Football County Final between Aherlow and Eire Og, Nenagh. Herlow won that day.”)


  1. That was beautiful! I watched this five times today and it only gets better. The animation is PERFECT

  2. I used to have a cd with this man’s commentary on it. He was on Radio1 once I think. Brilliant.
