Meath took on Down hurling at the weekend and after the game the Meath GAA twitter account tweeted out in reply to Down GAA calling out the score. “It’s a Kip, no inter county matches should be played in that place. Hasn’t changed in 30 years. How many sliotars were lost today???”

What way do you go about investigating it? It was a tweet. Someone clearly posted it. What is there to investigate 😂

Hard to believe @MeathGAA would make a comment like that about fellow Gaels…maybe if they knew some of their history about the clubhouse in Ballycran it would suit them better….we had to play Meath last year in Trim on a heavy pitch AFTER a club football game..kettle and pot! pic.twitter.com/R2jjZ2j2qw

You just got to love the reply though, was that someone messing or was it someone that actually runs the Meath GAA twitter account. As you can see the county have now apologised to Down GAA for this reply and on the Meath GAA website today they said;
“Coiste na Mí C.L.G. are aware of an offensive tweet coming from our Twitter account this afternoon. This tweet in no way reflects the views of Coiste na Mí C.L.G,” the Meath GAA statement read.
“A full investigation of how the tweet was posted commenced in the aftermath of the tweet and is currently underway.
“We have been in contact with the Down County Board apologising for the tweet which was deleted as soon as we became aware of it.”
