Seems that the kerfuffle over the New York hurling win is growing. See they were supposed to lose, like they do every other year, but on this occasion they defeated Derry. So they should be playing Antrim in Ulster in their next match.
But they have a problem. They don’t want to fly to Ireland because they may have visa problems if they then try and get back into the States.
So the GAA are have postponed the match while they try to sort something out. Antrim don’t want to go to America. Their players will need to take time off work and Antrim GAA will have to cough up money to pay for accommodation and travel.
And, maybe it is the conservative authoritarian side of me but if I’m being brutally honest I say fuck New York. If they are fielding illegal immigrants then it is their own look out. Why should Antrim have to rearrange their schedule in order to accommodate law breakers?
Maybe I’m being harsh, but I can’t help but compare attitudes to the Irish living illegally in American versus the attitude to immigrants who’ve come here to Ireland.
And what is all this about the Ulster champions not being involved in the All-Ireland. Few question to any GAA heads; First of all is this true? Second of all, why? It can’t just be because Ulster hurling is shite can it?
And while I’m talking about sports, pop over to the Hogan Stand and vote in the poll, just remember you DO want to see Munster in Croke Park. It’d be deadly.
