That’s the way it’s gone now with the social media.


#242

There’s definitely less than before if anything


#243

From my experience I would think broadly similar .


#244

Junior A Hurling in West Limerick was basically faction fighting when I was young fella, you’d rarely see any more than the odd schmozzle now.


#245

A great Irish tradition :clap:


#246

Ah it wasn’t that bad . Lk GAA as a whole was never that bad .


#247

Another sport we invented.


#248

Askeaton v Croagh would regularly result in a full scale brawl on the fields and in the stands


#249

Dromcollogher and Broadford were both given 12 month bans after a brawl back in the late 70’s I think.


#250

Croagh were dog rough in the 80s and 90s ok but have calmed . Killeedy too .

Glin footballers in the 80s and 90s were rough men too .


#251

From what I hear Pallasgreen are softening .


#252

#253

cc @chocolatemice actual stick fighting is still practiced as a martial art.

#254

Interesting … i did a small bit of research on it before but didnt turn up too muvh…


#255

We used to have some fantastic dust ups in the Waterford County Finals. The 1999 final between ourselves and Ballygunner was out and out warfare. I got into into a melee on the bank with some Ballygunner fans.


#256

How did you fare?


#257

I got a dunt across the face from one of the Ballygunner women and that softened my cough.


#258

:grin:

They usually do…


#259

The picture of your man there from Laois with the busted lip. That was an occupational hazard/badge of honour for hurlers until the helmets became compulsory.

Hurling has gone awful soft. Sure the Laois chap had a gum shield on under his full face helmet ffs

Gaelic Football is a game for unskilled oafs.
