Great news! The OTB lads confirm they'll be back on air soon
Their ‘garden leave’ is set to come to an end in the near future.

IF LIKE US, you’ve been suffering from withdrawal symptoms since the Off The Ball lads departed Newstalk, we’ve got some great news to report.

The five-man team of Eoin McDevitt, Ken Early, Ciaran Murphy, Mark Horgan and Simon Hick shocked fans by leaving the station on March 4 – citing “fundamental differences of opinion” between management and the production team.

However, they have confirmed via their Twitter account this afternoon that they will return to the airwaves in the near future.

No further details were announced. Read the tweets below:
