Going into the 2010 All-Ireland Final, Kilkenny were the team to beat. Going into the game they were gunning for a historic 5th title in as many years and all that stood in their way was a Tipperary team that had battled their way to the final after an up and down season. That day, no one could have thought they were about to see one of the greatest team performances in All-Ireland history.

In 1998 the area of Castleknock was a growing area with a population of around 60,000 people and was looking double in size in the near future, but was missing one major component of any Irish community, a GAA football and hurling club. With no pitch, no players and no money, a select few, with just an idea and the drive to push that idea,  were able to create something spectacular in just a 19 year period.

The 1990s was a golden era of hurling, but the season of 1995 stands out for many people as the most compelling year in the decade. This is because a Clare team that wasn't particularly fancied as a favourite ended up winning taking the Liam McCarthy cup home for the first time in 81 years. Balls spoke to Ger 'Sparrow' O'Loughlin, a key member of that side about their journey. This includes tales from their legendary training sessions, the characters in the changing room that made it unforgettable and how they managed to get over the line.

Maurice Fitzgerald is a Kerry footballing legend. In a county that routinely produces wonderful stylish players, he is often held up as one of the greatest of all. He was known for exuding class at almost every touch of the ball but none more so than in his iconic sideline point against Dublin in the 2001 All-Ireland quarter final. As well as being one of the best points in GAA history, it was of huge significance as it levelled the scoreline late in what was a do-or-die setting between traditional rivals and the first quarter final in GAA history. Balls spoke to his former teammate Dara Ó Cinnéide about what it was that made him stand out.
