Tuesday marked a final milestone for outgoing GAA director general Paraic Duffy.
The release of the GAA annual report is the last for Duffy in his current role before he departs after a decade in situ, and comes at a time when both hurling and football are going to be structured differently at inter-county Championship level.
He joined Joe in studio to discuss developments during his tenure as well as the main points from the 2018 report.
You can listen to the full interview on the podcast player:
One issue touched on was April being reserved for club fixtures and what can be done if inter-county setups do not comply with those rules or other statutes.
"Croke Park cannot manage every individual county. You can set the rules and the guidelines - guidelines in some cases, rules in others - the vast majority of counties will work to the spirit of those - some won't," he said, before responding "that's a possibility" when Joe asked if GAA HQ can oversee those county board decisions more stringently.
And when asked if sanctioning counties that do not comply with rules could happen, he said, "If that's what it takes to do this, absolutely".

"You're saying that a lot of counties won't play the club games in April. If that was to be the case then the next step would be to financially - some are more dependent than others but they are financially supported by Croke Park and it would be very straightforward and if that was necessary, I would do that but I think this year will be better."
Duffy also discussed other issues including the broadcast deal with Sky and payments to managers as well as his view on GAA testimonials.
