Watch: GAA Stars Have A Much Needed Whinge About Their Pet Peeves

Watch: GAA Stars Have A Much Needed Whinge About Their Pet Peeves

It's always interesting to find out about what makes athletes tick, or ticks them off in this case. Six inter-county stars spoke to the GAA last night to dish the dirt on what grinds their gears off the pitch.

James O'Donoghue - Bad Drivers

Kerry scoring ace James O'Donoghue stresses that people with bad driving skills should be put off the road. Maybe his propensity to drive direct for the goals is the cause for this.

If they're contributing to traffic, get em off the road. You should be graded on your driving between one and 10 and if you're lower than five or six you shouldn't be driving

Kieran Bergin - Too Many Questions

He appreciates her enthusiasm, but Tipperary hurler Kieran Bergin would rather his girlfriend asked less questions about hurling when a game is coming up.

I know she doesn't do it intentionally but my girlfriend asks questions about hurling and thinks they're normal. She tends to do it close to a game and I know she has my best interests at heart but I'd prefer if she didn't

Philly McMahon - Dublin


The Dublin defender has just one response to this - respect the equipment


When people leave my gym in a mess

Andy Smith - Messy People

Similar to McMahon, the Galway midfielder dreams of a world where everyone is tidy.

People who don't tidy up after themselves gets me every time

Cillian O'Connor - Parking Problems

Mayo's Cillian O'Connor wants drivers to take greater caution when parking their cars. Range Rover owners should take note here.

People who park across two parking spaces can be enraging. It's especially annoying if you're driving around for an hour and a half and some range rover is taking up two spaces

Noel Connors - Time Management

One thing is for sure, if you have an appointment with Noel Connors he will not look kindly on you if you arrive late.


Time management is a pet hate for me. I think if someone says they'll be there at half past, it's unacceptable to arrive any later. I just find it very frustrating and I know it's a bit of an Irish thing to do but I dislike it anyway

Attention to detail seems to be the running trend between these extracts which goes some way to explaining why all these players are operating at the top level in GAA.
