Dublin GAA Chief Not Happy With Croke Park Or Darragh O’Se

Dublin Chief Executive John Costello has criticised former Kerry footballer Darragh O’Se for comments made about Diarmuid Connolly. In his annual report released today Costello claims that in a pre-Championship preview Ó Sé as good as placed a target on the back of the Dublin forward. Costello feels some of the content was mean-spirited and that the choice of language was somewhat inflammatory. Costello also hits out at Croke Park for giving them only 15,000 euro for their players holiday fund despite the money raised by the replay against Mayo. He says “it appear Charles Dickens’ Ebenezer Scrooge has taken up residence off Jones’s Road.” Costello also says that Dublin players aren’t praised enough for their skill and ability to play while it’s suggested that the provincial boundaries be redrawn to include 4 groups of 8.
