Joe Brolly was writing in his latest column with Independent.ie and taking aim at the retirement posts of the GAA players that are stepping away from the game, but it seems he particularly had a problem with Mayo. Bit Harsh?
“Two other groups who should not be allowed to tweet or use social media are the GPA and county players.
“This sugary, cringeworthy combination of Hello! magazine and the GAA has brought us over the last few weeks the annual avalanche of player retirement tweets . . .”
“I want to thank my sponsors Audi, Aldi and Lucozade Sport (which not only improves sporting performance, but is also a delicious drink for any occasion) and I hope that we can continue on our heroic journey together over the next decade (at least).
“I will not be making any further comment until the release of my autobiography WARRIOR next week, which has been described by GPA chief executive Paul Flynn as ‘the most inspiring thing I have read since Mandela’s Long Walk to Freedom’.”
After 11 season with Mayo Tom Parsons has today announced his inter-county retirement. We thank Tom for outstanding commitment to the Mayo jersey & wish him all the best in the future.https://t.co/45cteDu6MX #mayogaa pic.twitter.com/bmZ4eaECfK

He added: “Twitter, Facebook and Instagram need to follow up on their Trump ban by banning this crap.”
