Eoghan Harris: On the road from Beal na Blath to Lough Hyne


Charlie Bird, standing in for Marian Finucane, breaks an RTE radio taboo and calls me up for a comment on the 'Brian Lenihan at Beal na Blath' controversy.

Just as well too, as the train carrying my co-commentator, Nora Owen, goes into a tunnel, cutting her mobile connection and leaving me to carry the can.

Later on, I turn down the volume on the television, turn up the volume on Micheal O Muircheartaigh on radio, and bite my nails as Cork scrapes home against Dublin. As Micheal's sound is a few seconds ahead of the TV picture, this allows me to be predict when a point is coming. Pity that facility was not available to us before the banking crisis.
