And SOME people think the GAA is a bit close to the IRA appreciation society;
The mother of an 11-year-old boy is angry that children at a Gaelic Athletic Club football blitz at the weekend were given medals bearing the picture of a dead IRA man. The medals given to the Under-12 boys at Galbally Pearses Club in Tyrone featured Martin McCaughey. He and IRA man Dessie Grew were shot dead by the SAS in October 1990. “It was outrageous. My son was asking what the hero did,” said the mother who did not want to be named. “We had no warning that the medals would be dedicated to a dead IRA man.”
I am sure the GAA authorities will be issuing an apology and condemning Galbally Pearses Club. Any moment now….
