Get your mid-week GAA fix here with Press Pack


The Wexford renaissance under Davy Fitzgerald, the player drain to the AFL and more up for discussion as host Damian Lawlor is joined by John Fogarty of the Irish Examiner and The 42's Fintan O'Toole for this week's Press Pack.

Tyrone's Cathal McShane joined via Skype and revealed how close he came to joining the AFL and why, ultimately, he decided to stay at home.

"I had to weigh up everything. I am surrounded by good people at home. My family, friends and good Tyrone supporters," he said.

The panel will also discuss this weekend’s Allianz League fixtures, including the Croke Park double-header this Saturday featuring Dublin hurlers against Wexford followed by Dublin footballers against Donegal.
