Costello hits back at O'Se


Dublin GAA chief executive John Costello has criticised Darragh Ó Sé for his controversial comments about Diarmuid Connolly in June.

The six-time All-Ireland-winning midfielder claimed the only way to stop Connolly was to target his short fuse, going on to say that there was "something to be said for pulling his tail and seeing if he'll hiss back at you."

While manager Jim Gavin did his best to diffuse the situation, Costello believes the comments "placed a target" on Connolly's back.

Writing in his report to next week's county convention, Costello wrote: "Of course, you could argue ‘the ball was thrown-in’ very early in the summer ahead of any potential Dublin v Kerry clash.

"In a pre-championship preview, legendary Kerry footballer, Darragh Ó Sé, as good as placed a target on the back of one of our most outstanding footballers, Diarmuid Connolly," Costello writes.

"In my opinion, some of the content was mean-spirited and the choice of language was somewhat inflammatory."
