Joe Brolly's sad attack on Laochra stank
Sir - It was very sad to see Joe Brolly's outrageous and downright cynical column (Sunday Independent, May 1) regarding the recent GAA Laochra celebrations in Croke Park. His remarks were those of a whinging corner boy who laughs at just about everything.
He said the GAA went for a mix of 'Braveheart and The Quiet Man' and that Croke Park was full of "toothless simpletons waving swords" and an "Irish cailin with red hair". All that was missing, he said, was an appearance by the "King of Leprechauns".
It must be so hurtful to Brolly that over 70,000 patrons stayed in the stadium after the two league finals to savour this superb pageant and give it a standing ovation at the end. Maybe inside Brolly's small mind they too are toothless simpletons.
