OTR column – time for the GAA to embrace its ravers

You’ll find this week’s On the Record column from The Ticket here. “There will also be footballers and hurlers who look on with scorn and snobbery when they see who the GAA lets loose in Croke Park to make a few million bob. There has been some appalling vistas in recent years, with the likes of Bon Jovi and The Script stopping off at Jones’ Road, though next season’s appearance from Coldplay takes the notion of the bland and the beige into a whole new realm. You’ll never speak ill of a Leinster hurling semi-final again.”
