GAA facing music

In the light of the debacle relating to the staging of concerts at Croke Park, much to the detriment of local residents, it beggars belief that the GAA knowingly tried to foist not three but five concerts on the Croke Park residents.

They did this in the full knowledge of having a permit for three concerts. They then had the audacity to try and have Dublin City Council revoke the planning decision hitherto made and allow all concerts to go ahead. What churlish nonsense.

There appears to be in Ireland a total disregard for upholding the laws and regulations of the land. This was why we had a banking crisis.

It is time the GAA realised that they are also subject to the constitutional laws of this country, and set an example by complying with them.
