LOCAL RADIO IS the best.

And it’s at it’s very best when it’s covering GAA without any semblance of trying to remain neutral.

On Midland’s 103 today, Doron Harte, PJ Ward and Gerry Russell could hardly have believed they would be celebrating come the final whistle as Meath were well in control of their Leinster football semi-final clash.

However, following a dramatic second half, it was the Lake County who won through to a final with Dublin and the lads couldn’t contain themselves.
