A NEW GENERATION of Irish pundit is emerging ahead of a busy summer of football.

Damien Duff has earned praise for his recent apeparances on RTÉ and has been mooted as a longterm replacement for John Giles.

And today TV3 have announced that Richard Dunne — another stalwart of Irish campaigns — will join their Champions League coverage next week.

The pair were, of course, a major part of the last Irish team to reach a major international tournament in 2012, with Giovanni Trapattoni at the helm.

Ballymount bosses today announced that Dunne will be a special studio guest for Tuesday’s UEFA Champions League quarter-final second leg between his former side Manchester City and Paris St Germain.

Dunne will be joined by former team-mate Kevin Kilbane, ex-boss Brian Kerr, Neil Lennon and host Tommy Martin.
