This weekend saw the introduction of "hawkeye" by the GAA in the Leinster Football Quarter Final match between West Meath and Dublin.
The GAA revealed earlier in the year that the technology cost them "a serious six figure sum". However this they can easily afford,operating profits for the association last year were in excess of 50 million euro.
Meanwhile this weekend the annual Comortas Peile na Ghaeltachta took place. This year the host club were from Waterford, Rinn O gCuanach CLG. 5000 people from all around the different Gaeltacht areas were expected to attend. Unfortunately the competition is in decline in recent times and clubs from Donegal and Connemara were unable to attend due to travel costs.
This is a clear indication of the disgraceful direction the association is headed. The promotion of our natives language was one of the corner stones of its foundation. Occupying police forces are now wined and dined annually in HQ while clubs from Gaeltacht areas are forced to withdraw from their annual competition.
Sinn Fein Poblachtach in Wicklow stand firmly against this despicable betrayal. The technology known as "hawkeye" boasts it can reveal what the human eye can't see, however the GAA either can't see OR does not want to see the betrayal and hypocrisy which is endemic in the association in modern times.
