The GAA shouldn’t just impose a long suspension on the imbecile who gouged Damien Comer’s eyes at Croke Park, they should consider doing the same thing to Armagh.

This was the third serious fracas Kieran McGeeney’s Young Offenders have been involved in this season. It seems they’ve learned absolutely nothing from the suspension of 10 players, some involved yesterday, after a huge row following the 2018 Ulster U-20 semi-final against Tyrone.
