There was shock through the south Down GAA community tonight after Ballyholland Harps have decided to end all Gaelic games to pursue ‘Combat Sports’ instead.
The news comes just days after after the Harps had both an on and off field melee with Downpatrick RGU.
A Ballyholland Harps GAC spokesman told Newry Spud:
“It is with great regret that we announce the end to all things GAA within the club. We will now be renamed the ‘James Joyce King Of The Gypsies School Of Street Combat’ in which we will teach our footballers how to brawl.
The straw that broke the camel’s back was not just getting bate on the pitch by thon bunch of inbreds from Downpatrick but being bate off the pitch too is just not acceptable.”
