Thread: Fianna Fail go bonkers at over the top Kilkenny Junior Hurling celebrations!

  1. #1

    Default Fianna Fail go bonkers at over the top Kilkenny Junior Hurling celebrations!

    FF TD Robert Troy is from Westmeath which is not a stronghold of hurling. However it seems he's getting hot under the collar following Ballyragget's recent triumph at Junior level in Kilkenny. Ballyragget took time out of their training ahead of their next match in the Leinster Junior Hurling Championship to let their hair down with their supporters in a local pub.

    What transpired was not in keeping with the GAA ethos of our games according to Robert Troy. The ball may well have slipped out of his grasp on this one. We all know that the GAA will charge to see any of their games however through pay per view but this one has by all accounts been available free to air online. What's wrong with that?

    Shouldn't Deputy Troy not find something better to be doing with his own time?

    Why don't FF concentrate on who among there ilk and 'friends' brought this country to the edge of destruction?

    MM was there, WO'D was there. Why did they leave the Irish people paying for the failures of Irish banks?

    Yes way too much time on his hands maybe he should pay more to his constituants rather than moan about the way Kilkenny celebrate the success of their junior Hurlers and indeed on countless senior county success it only smacks of jealously because Westmeath never win anything if they did i dont think somehow he would be saying those same remarks.

    I hear the Ballyragget lads are up against the Kildare champions in the first round in Leinster. It'd be a shame if they peaked too soon.

    Is there any chance he was asked by the Indo for a comment?
    Due to recent experience it has been decided that Mods will no longer be replied to, whether posting in their capacity as mods or posting just as ordinary plebs. No pasaran!

    Is there anything to be said for saying another mass?
    You'll never go broke appealing to the lowest common denominator.

    The only problem with what happened if their was underage drinking, also if it comes out what pub the lock in striptease took place will have the Gaurds keeping a close eye on it for after hours drinking for a while
