A picture speaks a thousand words

This picture taken at the Leinster Junior football championship on Wednesday night where Kildare swept Kilkenny away with ease. Perhaps looking at this gem of a picture, we can see why it was no surprise that the Lilywhites beat the Cats by a most sizable margin.

The picture, which originated from Twitter user @truefergallynch and which has been doing the rounds on the social media circuits today, while looking ridiculous shows the true essence of the GAA.

In the picture is Kilkenny full back Paul Donnelly marking Kildare’s 2 time All-star footballer Dermot Earley. Dermot Early, who is coming back to fitness after a prolonged injury problem, is quite the athlete whist Paul Donnelly is clearly not.

However, where else would you see these polar opposites pitted against each other in such an arena? The spirit of the GAA is shown here, I am sure Paul Donnelly couldn’t believe it when he was told who he would be marking on Wednesday night.

A picture really does speak a thousand words.  End result, Kildare 0-18, Kilkenny 1-2.
