You’ve got to hand it to old-style GAA

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - - Letters -

Sir — I wish to com­mend Cullen Han­ra­han on his let­ter last week (‘Is it foot­ball or hand­ball?’, Septem­ber 10).

The mod­ern game has be­come very bor­ing to watch, with the ball be­ing hand­passed back and for­ward, over and over again.

Back in the old days the ba­sis of the game was catch and kick — and I can tell you that it was a joy to be­hold sev­eral play­ers leap­ing to strive to catch the drop­ping ball. Per­haps if one of our TV sta­tions would show a record­ing of a game played years ago in the old style, it would prove the point? Der­mot Casey, Holy­cross, Co Tip­per­ary
