Eugene McGee: Bi-lingual move can be Irish solution to minor problem

One of the great things about the GAA is that there is never a scarcity of controversy surrounding the organisation, from the smallest club to the head office in Croke Park itself.

I say 'great' because we all get a bit of craic from observing and sometimes taking part in one or more of these little or large squabbles, especially at this time of year when inter-county games are out of the question. And, God knows, we could all do with a bit of diversion at the present time as we get used to being a province rather than a nation once again.

We occasionally get very serious squabbles, such as the ongoing team management and player rows involving the Cork GAA, and the less important, but more enjoyable craic about the long drawn-out attempts by Meath GAA people to appoint a team manager.
