Davy Fitzgerald Calls On The Government To Take Action Against Cyber Bullying

Davy Fitzgerald Calls On The Government To Take Action Against Cyber Bullying

It's been a hell of a week for Davy Fitzgerald and Wexford. Entering the Leinster final as outsiders against rivals Kilkenny, they would put in a huge performance to end their 15-year provincial drought.

It was a special day for the county, and for their manager. While we're sure the celebrations have been flowing over the past few days, Davy took some time for a spot of golf today.

He took part in the The Dubai Duty Free Irish Open Pro-Am in Lahinch, where a number of well-known Irish personalities would team up with pro golfers for the day.

He was speaking to 2FM's Game On at the event, when the subject of online bullying was raised. Davy has been outspoken on the subject of bullying in the past, outlining his own experiences from his youth.

Cyber bullying has become a major problem in recent years, and the Wexford boss said something needs to be done to address the issue.

You have a lot of cowardly people that don't put their name to stuff, I just don't understand it..... we are all human at the end of the day, we are going to make mistakes.

I think the Government have to take a good look at the laws that are there and I really mean this, they need to get their act together as regards we can't afford to have anonymous people writing stuff...bullying young people and it's out there.

There's certain things happening that don't need to happen and I would encourage them the sooner the better and we have to take a grip of stuff and don't allow anonymous people do that and I think we have to look at the laws seriously in regards to that.

Cyber bullying is massive out there. Life is short enough. It really bothers me.
