An Indo Letter Writer Has Defamed GAA Players And 'Boggers' Everywhere

An Indo Letter Writer Has Defamed GAA Players And 'Boggers' Everywhere
By Mark Farrelly Updated

Donegal's Eamon McGee has alerted us to a letter that was sent to the Irish Independent by one K Haddick Flynn of North Finchley, London. It concerns Sunday's All-Ireland final and the pre-match ritual of President Michael D Higgins meeting the players.

K writes:

It is surely time that the GAA instructed its footballers in the exercise of basic good manners.

On Sunday last, a number of players on the Dublin and Kerry football teams omitted or refused to remove their football gloves when shaking hands with President Michael D Higgins. This was an indignity which, surely, would not have occurred elsewhere in these islands or in any civilised country.

GAA players are rightly admired in Ireland, but - as the saying goes - it is possible to take the man out of the bog, but difficult to take the bog out of the man!

That's ridiculous. Sure no one wears gloves to the bog!
