first_imgGAA president Liam O’Neill has condemned the Tyrone fan who spat at Donegal player Karl Lacey at Healy Park on Sunday.Lacey was the victim of the disgusting incident as he left the pitch via the tunnel at the ground. He wasn’t playing in the Division One clash with Tyrone.Tyrone management has apologised to Karl and have said they will ban the fan – believed to be a pensioner – once he is identified. “If the Tyrone County Board apologised, that’s the correct thing to do,” said O’Neill.“I have always said that any behaviour that makes anyone feel less good about themselves or about being involved in Gaelic games is abhorrent to me.“I wouldn’t condone that type of behaviour and to spit at anyone is disgraceful behaviour.“I really cannot understand the behaviour of anybody who insults or demeans anyone. It has no part in Gaelic games. “My message to those people is ‘we don’t need you’. I don’t want them in our organisation and I don’t want them going to our games. I would appeal to them to go and leave our games to people who want to come and enjoy themselves.” GAA PRESIDENT CONDEMNS FAN WHO SPAT ON DONEGAL PLAYER KARL LACEY was last modified: March 5th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:GAA PRESIDENT CONDEMNS FAN WHO SPAT ON DONEGAL PLAYER KARL LACEYlast_img
