He’s a staple on our telly when it comes to The Sunday Game but now Des Cahill has announced his decision to leave the show.
Yes, after 15 seasons in the hot seat the Dublin man has hung up his microphone.
However, we won’t be leaving us entirely.
Instead, he will be taking up hosting duties of both Saturday Sport and Sunday Sport on RTÉ Radio 1.
Speaking about his decision, Des said: “The reason I want a change is very straightforward- I want to go to live games again! It’s been a privilege to host The Sunday Game for the past 15 seasons, but I miss the sense of fun and anticipation as you make your way to a match, the feeling of tension and excitement, the roar of the crowd. I can’t wait to experience that again when I’m fronting Saturday and Sunday Sport live from some of the most iconic venues in the country.
“I’m hugely grateful and in debt to the fantastic team on The Sunday Game, who work so hard to bring the programme to air every week throughout the Championship. I’ve no doubt that their passion and commitment to deliver for the audience will continue in the seasons ahead with a new presenter in the hotseat”.
Joanne Cantwell will continue to anchor The Sunday Game Live. The new presenter of The Sunday Game will be announced in 2023.
