If people are genuinely shocked by those videos and photos they have lived extremely sheltered lives. Far far worse goes on at end of season gaa parties. Only difference is that there is normally a strict no phone policy with strippers, escorts etc. The lads filming were obviously young and naive but they will learn from it.

As for gaa hq or Kilkenny County Board getting involved, I think this would be ludicrous. The only link between the club and what happened is that the people play for the club. It's no different to a fella from the club taking the team on a stag where I'm sure many a cup has been brought.

The photos and videos getting leaked is unfortunate but this type of thing happens with groups of gaa players all around the world.

To add another bit of humour to it all, the name of the team Ballyragget are playing this weekend rhymes with something seen in the photos!!!

I'm not saying the county board should stop them representing Kilkenny in Leinster.

What I am saying is, i'd be surprised if they don't have the power to do so if they want to.

It will be really interesting to see what happens next.

The sad thing is the club seems to be really well run. They seem to organise lots of really good fundraisers. I think they are county junior A/B champions (2017) too and recently won a county under 21A and all-Ireland Junior A title.

This scandal will really hurt the older generations in the village who built the club to where it is now and would not be a fan of the players' behaviour.

Replying To Ashman13:  "It was the chaps 21st i.e. a private party. Obviously being only 2 days after the County Final the cup was still floating about & lads celebrating. County Board or GAA cant touch them."
They can as the cup is the 'property' of the GAA and hence they could be charged with brining the association into disrepute......what they do themselves is up to them but to have the cup there and in the pictures etc is disrespectful.......not sure who or what the cup is named after but if it was my family I would be raging

'Far far worse'.. You sound like Offaly's answer to Danny Healy Rae..'there was a year with had no strippers in Kerry at all at all bar a few auld cows Jim Pheats Willy took to the mart in Killorgan.'

Benn reported that the Gardai are involved which if true is absolutely laughable...go out and catch some real criminals lads, there are plenty out there.

The politically correct brigade are already saying that there is criminality involved.

I am shocked, shocked that anyone would give a toss, the only time it would bother me if I was in a pub having a quiet pint and a group of dysfunctional wastes of space like this were disturbing my peace, then there would be trouble.

Replying To Killarney.87:  "They do but I am not sure how many of those lads are inter-county standard anyway with the exception of Kevin Kelly who is already a big part of Cody's plans. He scored 3-11 in the semi-final and 0-10 in the final. He'll be glad of the step up to senior level at club next year by the looks of things.

I'd say Cody will be keeping a close eye on Dicksboro vs his beloved James Stephens in the county final. If he can find another Cillian Buckley or two within the Dicksboro ranks he'll be a happy man."
Those girls will be hoping James Stephens get beat then.

Aye tell me about it. His county upset my beloved Wee County on a number of occasions. But apart from that he is a decent oule skin.

Who's to say some of those "real criminals" aren't benefitting from the proceeds of the industry these lads were supporting Yew Tree?
