Last weekend the GAA president, Larry McCarthy, took to the local Cork radio station ‘Red FM’ for an interview and in the course of it, he expressed confidence that the collective training breach by Dublin last week would not put the inter-county GAA season in jeopardy. It was a fair and accurate assumption, already articulated by Minister for Sport Jack Chambers the previous Thursday.

I don’t think that honestly, this particular incident is going to impact it,” McCarthy told the station. “But if there was another one? Oh Lord, that would make it very difficult for us.”
