Interesting to see that the Irish republican leopard does not change its spots;
A GAA road safety event had to be cancelled when members objected to the involvement of the police. The ‘Live to Play’ event in Co Tyrone was called off when some host club members threatened to hold a picket when the PSNI was due to take part in the Ulster Council Scheme. The scheme was set up following the deaths of a number of road deaths involving GAA members and aims to encourage young players to drive safely. The road safety drive involves the Fire and Rescue Service and the PSNI and was to take place at the grounds of the Derrydresk GAC near Coalisland on Monday.
I can’t say that I am that surprised. Rather than engage in ways to save lives of GAA members on our roads, these proud denizens of Tyrone would rather protest at the Police. Aren’t they a sad lot?
