Just listened to the Bunce show and well done to Gunning, you warming to the role and I noticed how Bunce couldn't get a word sideways with you. You could be to boxing commentry what Dunphy is to football.

It's basically odd looking ****ers with treatening stares holding up traffic on country roads while they rip lumps out of the ditch. Oh, and gambling.

No not from Aughagower tommy, im from around castlebar, wouldnt be too far away though. One of my mates is from Aughagower and he was fairly handy at road bowling. I never so much as saw as played a game of it but i heard theres a few good players around those parts.
