The intention is for this to be proudly displayed anywhere Gaelic games are played at home or abroad. Stay tuned for more this morning! #GAABelongpic.twitter.com/cf8ivhGomP
Young and old, players and volunteers, supporters and administrators, coaches and referees, wherever we are, whatever our role, our GAA is where we all belong. Today we’re celebrating all the people who make our GAA what it is and what our GAA means to us all. #GAABelongpic.twitter.com/Y1hIZ3Gid5
Kildare-Mayo set for Newbridge at 7pm on Saturday, RTÉ understands.
Kildare and the GAA have been locked in a stand-off since Monday afternoon when the Central Competitions Control Committee (CCCC) scheduled their round-three qualifier tie with Mayo as part of a double-header with Cavan and Tyrone at Headquarters [Croke Park].
Kildare insisted that the home advantage the draw provided them had been taken away without their consent and Lilywhites [Kildare] boss Cian O’Neill told RTÉ Sport Monday night that his players would not be anywhere but Newbridge on Saturday night.
For their part, the GAA had maintained that St Conleth’s Park [in Newbridge] would not be the venue as it holds only 8,500 and they are anticipating a crowd of 18,000 to 20,000.
So Kildare-Mayo, 7pm Saturday, Newbridge. All it took to come full circle was GAA breaking own rules, suggesting their customers are thugs, threatening entire county, ruining players’ preparation, and taking much good out of it.
Well done lads. Wages earned. Real insight. #GAA
