Colm Cooper appeared on the Late Late Show on Friday night, partly to address the furore surrounding his testimonial dinner later this month.

The event is set to make around €250,000 with part of the proceeds going to charity. Cooper will also make a considerable sum from the night.

Joe Brolly has been one of the most outspoken opponents of the Kerryman's decision to hold the event. Writing in his Sunday Independent column last month, Brolly called the night a 'rejection of the ideals of the GAA', 'cheap and self-serving' and said that Cooper would 'live to regret' the decision. He also disclosed that he had voiced his opposition to Cooper in person.

Cooper was asked about Brolly's criticism by Ryan Tubridy last night. He revealed that Brolly had sent him a text message during the week to say 'sorry about all the fuss. I wish there wasn't reaction that there was, and that it's gone overboard.' Cooper's reading of the situation was that Brolly had 'apologised and obviously changed his tune'.

That was a misreading of the situation from Cooper. Brolly tweeted late last night to clarify that he had indeed sent Cooper a text message during the week but his tune certainly has not changed.
