A video has gone viral of a pitch that was used for a Tyrone vs Mayo under 17’s hurling match. This has sparked massive outrage and the need to invest in the other county’s that wouldn’t be a hurling strong hold.
Former three time All-Ireland winner Donal Óg Cusack was on The Sunday Game with former Clare legend Anthony Daly and the two have asked for the GAA to invest real money in the none traditional hurling county’s, to give them a proper chance at competition at the highest level.

I can remember playing in fields back in the 80’s. Check out what Tyrone and Mayo U17 hurlers had to play on yesterday. Time stands still 🤷♂️🤷♂️Ps, fair play to the club for actually offering their ground. It isn’t easy being a hurler in big ball Country 😡😡 pic.twitter.com/EiNvCAfqRl

You can see the rewards they got from investing in Dublin GAA, now the time has come to invest in other county’s that badly need it!
Donal Óg and Anthony reckon the GAA needs huge, planned investment in the smaller counties if hurling is to thrive. pic.twitter.com/5kpWe0IxFL
