Letters to the Editor

Sir - As someone who was involved in Gaelic football most of my life, I completely disagree with Alan Brogan's article (Sport, Sunday Independent, September 24) which condoned the behaviour of the Dublin players in the last minutes of their All-Ireland final against Mayo.

Likewise, I could not condone the behaviour of Lee Keegan in the alleged GPS-throwing incident. Top Gaelic footballers seem to forget their responsibilities as role models to the young boys and girls who watch their every move.

There is an element of cheating about this kind of behaviour. More than ever, the world needs good role models for youth.
