Former Cork hurler Conor Cusack claimed to be 'distressed' after reading an anecdote in Joe Brolly's Sunday Independent column ahead of today's All-Ireland final between Dublin and Kerry.

Cusack, who is a brother of All-Ireland winning goalkeeper Donal Og bravely opened up on his battles with mental illness last year.

The Cork native won widespread admiration for publicly speaking out over depression, suicide and his life since.

He took to Twitter this morning to criticise Brolly for an extract in his column today.

He tweeted: "Distressing to read this in a national newspaper this morning from an U10 GAA coach.& we wonder at men's high suicide."

The passage he was referring to read: "At the final whistle, their coach, my old friend Giles McNicholl, danced across to his troops punching the air with delight, and why wouldn't he? Our lads, meanwhile, were all sobbing like contestants on The X Factor until I snapped at them "Quit yapping boys, it's embarrassing." At which point the tears were switched off."
