Not a recent or a Dublin phenomenon, think back to Jack Lynch, John Wilson, Enda Kenny's father, in more recent times John O'Mahony,Jimmy Deenihan, Jerry Buttimer, etc. Their high profile is an advantage, as it is in the case of Lord Ross, Mairead McGuinness and others from a non-sporting background.This has been raised by me on other threads previously in relation to politicians in Dublin using the GAA to seek electoral gain. Specifically one who was a know all independent who had all the answers but who has since been appointed a minister and has done feck all proving he is just a tosser.
The GAA is vast organisation and it's hard to police everything, it should be investigated and sanctions applied if neccessary, again I wiĺl say the vast majority want FA to do with party politics in their clubs.

Hey you croppy,What do you call it when you cannot march on the main street of Strabane?
Does your Order not care about this destruction of human rights?
To think you was crying about Belfast city taking down the Union flag for most days of the year.... you old Croppy you.
I am glad to learn that you are not a Stater and even more glad to learn that you are not a Prod. Thank you for your advice.I don't give orders, it was advice.
Btw, I'm not a prod or a Stater, I'm an Irish republican from Ardoyne in Belfast.
