For those of you who are avid GAA heads, you will know that the National Football and Hurling leagues are back in full swing and that the second round of matches took place over the weekend. 

Mayo faced Kerry on Saturday night in Castlebar and despite their best efforts, lost by three points on a scoreline of 1-15 to 2-9 in favour of the Kingdom. 

However, that news hadn't travelled clearly enough up to the capital and when RTÉ Sports presenter, Dave Kelly, was doing a round up of Saturday's action, he surprised and angered a lot of GAA fans while Mayo and Kerry fans were left double checking themselves.

In the report he states that: "Mayo have a 100% record after two games in the Allianz Football League (Nope). The defending champions Kerry (that is true, they did win it last year) had two players sent-off (also correct) in a three point defeat (incorrect).

Just goes to show that even the most basic mistake can change the entire outcome of a situation... 

The report was clarified towards the end of the bulletin and sure, after all, the man is only human.

Everyone makes a mistake sometime.
