The Second Captains team are joining RTE Radio 1 for a new weekly GAA programme.
RTE announced they will front a new GAA show on Sunday evening at 6pm.
The new show will be presented by Eoin McDevitt and Ciaran Murphy.
Tom McGuire, head of RTE Radio 1, said the show is building on the success of Sunday Sport.
"As well as top-class analysis and features, Second Captains Championship will be the first place fans go to express their post-match opinion.
"It's a brand new show on RTÉ Radio 1 but presented and produced in a style familiar to fans of Second Captains on RTÉ Two Television. We look forward to welcoming the boys on board with a lively engagement with listeners on summer Sundays.”
Second Captains are the multi-award winning broadcasting team of Eoin McDevitt, Ken Early, Ciaran Murphy, Mark Horgan and Simon Hick. Listeners will be familiar with the team having just completed the second series of their popular RTÉ Two Television show - Second Captains Live.
Fans of the team will remember them from their days with Newstalk's 'Off The Ball' programme.
This week, 'Off The Ball' announced their own big news announcing that rugby hero Brian O'Driscoll was joining them as a panelist.
