Shay Connolly – The Five In A Row Is What We’re After
‘Cluxton gets the ball and taps on his toe,
Gives out to Cooper and away he’s goes,

In October 2001, the GAA threatened legal action with the makers of GI (Gay Ireland) accusing the magazine of ‘bringing the association into disrepute’ over the use of county jerseys [Kerry, Dublin, Cork, Galway, Kilkenny and Mayo] in chap-on-chap billboard snogs.
