A strange trend has emerged here in Ireland whereby fans of certain sports pit themselves against each other online. Case in point, a minority of those who dismiss rugby revelling in Ireland’s Six Nations defeat to England yesterday.

One thing that is difficult to argue though is the connection between players and supporters in the GAA. It’s something that’s commonplace in cities and parishes across the country and it was never more evident than in Limerick last night.

After defeating Tipperary by seven points, the hosts and current All-Ireland champions Limerick returned to the pitch for a warm-down and were swiftly joined by a gang of children who had hung around after the game.

Before that, dozens of youngsters took advantage of the half-time break to puck sliotars around the Gaelic Grounds pitch and while this is a common sight in GAA, it’d be fairly surprising to see such scenes at any other sporting event in the world.

In an age where some sport stars accused of being out of touch, scenarios like this are great to see.
