Championship Celebrations

(Oldest Posts First)

Is it within the rights of the GAA to tell clubs how they can/can't celebrate winning a championship?

Agree its none of there business, It wasnt the most best behavior but their young lads and nothing that doesnt happen on stags every weekend in all parts of the country.

I'd say the main issue which those in authority have is the presence of the cup, which is Kilkenny GAA property and probably dedicated to some great Gael who's family may not be too enamored by the fact that an overweight stripper was using it as a bra. That's where the disrepute and disrespect comes into it. No problem with having private functions like this but the presence of the cup means that the event is associated with the GAA

The problem is people's obsession with sharing there lives on social media, no doubt the pictures and the videos came from one of the players present who just couldn't leave there phone alone, phones should be banned from county and club celebrations

I doubt very much that this was an official club celebration

The clip I saw there were loads of people there taking snaps with their mobiles.

My point exactly mobile phones get people into trouble, nothing wrong with young fellas behaving like young fellas

Every Meath poster defending the 'young fellas'. No wonder ye have gone back so much at the football if that's all ye're 'young fellas' do.

Two really good points there about it not being an official club celebration and a stripper using the cup as a bra.

I wonder what Ned Quinn will do. I say take the cup back from them and leave it at that.

You could be right wacker, but I think Meath have gone backwards because there afraid of the top teams like Dublin, i.e. We're goin soft

It's true. Harnan, Lyons, Foley, McEntee, Cassells, O'Connell...fear wasn't in those lads make up. They were hard fellas.

They were hard fellas allright, that Meath team never came out second best in the physical stakes, looking back on the Meath teams of the late 80s and the 90s it makes it harder to see that this Meath team are seen as soft touches, how do you think your own county will get on this year ? Hopefully they build on last year

Thats a high standard you're setting there bull. Anything goes as long as no one is killed or injured.

It would certainly lessen the pressure on the courts & prisons & half the solicitors & barristers would be out of business.

You could be on to something.....
