It was very disappointing to see what happened at the weekend in the Tipperary vs Wexford challenge match, where Lee Chin received racial abuse from some idiot in the crowd. Wexford chairman Micheál Martin spoke after the game to the media and said the following;
“I would say we in Wexford are proud of the reaction of our players. I think they called out the action very promptly.
“It’s been widely acknowledged since that what happened was appalling, it was wrong and there’s no place for it in sport or society.”
“Tipperary GAA and ourselves have taken it very seriously. We’re also liaising with Croke Park and an investigation has already commenced I would say and is progressing.”
The chairman was also speaking to Lee Chin this week and Lee said the following;
“Lee has spoken about the importance of challenging this type of behaviour, not just for himself but for the players who follow in his footsteps.”
