GAA Players On Twitter Condemn Jerry Kiernan’s Trolling

jk

Jerry Kiernan let rip at the fitness of GAA players – especially footballers – on Off The Ball last night, with a pretty petty rant in a discussion purportedly about Sport Council funding. Kerryman Kiernan clearly has no love for the roundball and was particularly scathing about the Carlow and Wicklow (and presumably all non-Division 1) football players. On Twitter this morning, intercounty footballers have been having their say about Kiernan’s comment. Not surprisingly, perhaps, they don’t agree.


Other Irish athletes have reacted to Kiernan’s comments, including Thomas Chamney who has been on the receiving end of Kiernan’s ire in the past.

Swimmer Barry Murphy, one of the first Irish athletes to complain on Twitter about the cut to grants to Irish Olympians, offered his own two cents.
