Duffy hits out over 'Bitegate'

THE GAA's top-paid official has castigated both Dublin and Donegal for protecting their "own interests" during the investigation into last year's so-called Bitegate controversy in Ballybofey.

Director general Páraic Duffy maintains his previous public stance that Donegal's Patrick McBrearty was definitely bitten during the game and goes even further, describing it as "reprehensible" that no player was ultimately held to account.

Duffy's comments are given further topicality by the fact that the Leinster Council last week launched its own investigation into the alleged biting of a DCU player during their O'Byrne Cup game against Dublin.

In his latest annual report to GAA Congress, released today, Duffy doesn't hold back as he recalls "one of the low points of 2013", the NFL game between Donegal and Dublin in Ballybofey.
