'The most culchie thing ever said on The Sunday Game!': Tomas O Se got a good slagging for his description of a Kerry star

The final Sunday Game of the year is always good fun.

Every pundit is gathered in the studio to rehash the season that was, and although Dublin and Mayo's draw in the All-Ireland final meant that the final broadcast of this year was on a Saturday night, it was just as interesting as ever.

The Sunday Game panel picked their Team of the Year and Player of the Year - with Dublin dominating both - but one of the most memorable moments of the night was when Tomas O Se announced the pundits' full forward line.

Unsurprisingly, Kerry's Paul Geaney was included in the corner after a season spent tormenting opposition defences, and O Se gave a hilarious explanation of what makes the 25-year-old such a dangerous player.

"He is a real Townie player, he is confident," O Se explained, to the uproarious laughter of his colleagues.

Before the Kerry legend could go any further, host Des Cahill jumped in to attempt to put O Se's comment into context.

"That is the most culchie thing that has ever been said on the Sunday Game!," exclaimed Cahill.

When pressed by Joe Brolly to further explain what constitutes a 'Townie' player, O Se had a quick response for the ex-Derry footballer.

"You would have been a Townie player," O Se said.

"A cheeky player who is oozing with confidence and Paul is definitely that."

Townie or not, Geaney had a fantastic season and is a near certainty to collect an All Star award next month.
