Now other than professing to be a sport for all and non party political, moi wouldn't know much about city based GAA clubhouses...



But given the above event and Shin flakes involvement and support...



Surely some clarification on the rules of non party politics tis required?...

answers from the GAA over the event staged at Michael Davitts GAC - which has received more than £1.3m in funding from the Lottery and Belfast City Council - on the Falls Road.

"I think it is only right that the GAA clarify for the benefit of the wider community if they believe the hosting of events which glorify the actions of the IRA should be held on their premises," he said.

"Failing to rid the GAA of this baggage will undoubtedly put the spotlight on GAA sponsors and the award of public funding and other funding to GAA clubs who host events like this on their premises."

"The GAA should state clearly that events glorifying terrorism have no place on club premises."

A flyer advertising the event hosted by veteran republican Joe Austin was posted on the club's Facebook page on March 2.

In a statement, Ulster GAA said: "The GAA is a non-party political organisation.

"This is specified in the rules of the GAA and any breaches of rules are treated seriously and may incur suspension."


Now that statement would suggest some action will be taken, such as waiting until tis no longer news and doing nathing...

It should be noted that the poster is near all in English, are these the words that people say they have a knowledge of when they fill in the census form?

Of course it is unacceptable. But unfortunately the very nature of the GAA is that the power lies at local community level, so nobody is really in a position to do anything about it. You'd only need to look at some of the knots it gets itself into when Croke Pk attempts to lay down the law regarding playing suspensions and the like to realise there isn't a hope. So bottom line, you'll need to take it up with the locals in Best Welfast.

The Holy Roman Catholic and Apostolic Church.

Two things you should ask here, and I'm not a fan of these events:

1. Should Sinn Féin try to keep hard-liners on side?

2. Should GACs be run at community level - whether that's running events or providing facilities?

Here horse moi will decide what questions moi asks, such as do you think Shin flake continued usage of GAA facilities to commemorate PIRA is in contravention of both the GAA rules and the claims to be welcoming to all sides of the community?...

Heard that gig is now being held in the Phoenix park. I blame the croke park residents for the switch.
