    Exclamation All star hurer Donal Óg Cusack "Im gay"

    2 time all star hurler with 3 all Ireland medals Donal Óg Cusack as not so much as come out of the closet but jump of the top of it.
    Its the lead story in this mornings "Irish mail on Sunday" he is promoting his autobiography.
    There have been rumours abounding for years and apparently the Cork dressing room has been well aware of it for a long time.

    Is he the 1st senior sports star to come out like this and do people think seeing as he is still heavily involved in GAA ,will this affect is future in the sport seeing as he is still playing and a manger at cloyne his local club ?

    Fair play.

    I might try to hide my inherent dislike of Cork hurlers, but I am just over compensating.

    As long as he's happy, that's the important thing.

    I should certainly hope not... Is that really likely? Do people in rural GAA circles really get worked up about that sort of thing? I know there's an astonishing amount of rampant homophobia on these forums, but had always attributed it to mindless trollery...

    Rural Ireland isn't any different from urban Ireland.

    And the GAA isn't nearly as backward as some folks would have you think.

    Why would you wish for anyone to be anything but happy?

    It's good to be happy.

    Part of the maturing process, I suppose.

    Still a brave move on his part though. It's not GAA specific, most sportsmen don't come out of the closet due to fears of being picked on and focused on by the media.

    It is important for him to be happy but why are so many people on this site intrigued about a gay hurler.
