Journalist Sinead O’Carroll and former Olympic swimmer Gary O’Toole were reviewing the Sunday papers a couple of weeks back on Newstalk. And they made a very fair point. It is hard to pick up a newspaper now and read anything positive about the GAA. They cited several articles from the Sunday papers totally critical and negative about the GAA – gaelic football in particular.

It’s difficult to find a positive commentary on GAA matters any more – seemed to be their point.
