Silke is a Galway man and a Mayo Cop was driving the car . A bit of getting own back after Salthill
So was the NUIG player, Silke would more than pobably not have being involved in the Salthill game. as Mayo man he would have a interest in helping UCD as they were captained by Stephen Coen, a Mayo man

Oh look another thread by The_SR where he shows his hatred of the GAA!
Irrelevant. Did it happen r not? If it did, why did it happen? As a taxpayer, do you think this is good use of Garda resources for which you pay.

No doubt this sort of thing has been happening for decades, and its clearly only West Brits on the interweb kicking up all the fuss!
Ferrying GAA players to mass and county councillors to funerals has probably been a vital part of Gardai services to the community since the arrival of the motorcar!

yes it happened.
It happened because the 2 games were fixed too close together. That was poor form by GAA.
Yes, I think it was fine to do it.

Ah yes...the Gardai as a Taxi service.

Yes.

It could happen to a Montrose Millionaire.

A montrose Millionaire, high on Coke, even.

When I first moved to Dublin I would often see a drunken Mannix Flynn jump into Gardai cars and demand to be driven home. Most times they obliged.

The Garda are constantly telling the rest of us they don't have enough Garda cars to turn up when a crime has been committed yet they have a Garda car to escort a player to a match?

No, it's not fine to waste resources like this. Let the GAA hire a helicopter next tine they mess up.

This is disgraceful there's actual crimes being committed and the guards waste their resources on this I'm sure this player could have got someone else to drive him to the match.

a patrol car speeding into Dublin with lights flashing is sure to have prevented a few serious crimes and also slowed down hundreds of cars that saw it coming , in all a great days work done by the crew of this car. They should escort more GAA players
