Fallout Continues For Walsh As Laois Take Action Over Disgraceful Tweet

The fallout continues for Gary Walsh after the Laois footballer posted a disgraceful tweet earlier this week.

Following the conclusion of the infamous Belfast rape trial earlier this week, Gary Walsh posted a hugely controversial tweet which led to a massive lash back for the Laois footballer.

Posting on his official Twitter account, Walsh made an absurd assertion before threatening to ‘throw the kitchen sink’ at any ‘feminist’ who disagreed with him.

“Where’s your ones name from the paddy Jackson trial? It’s her that should be destroyed in the papers now. All yee feminists come at me I’ll throw the kitchen sink at ya.”

After a massive reaction online, Walsh deleted the tweet and swiftly apologised stating that it was an ill-judged error and that he should not have spoken in such a manner regarding such a sensitive topic.

“It was ill judged on my behalf in this regard. It is a heated and sensitive topic for all concerned which has already attracted too much public attention for those concerned.”

However, it seems that the tweet has had more severe consequences than would have ever crossed Walsh’s mind when he made the bizarre decision to post the provocative comment. Reported by Laois Today, the news has now emerged that the Ballylinan man has been suspended from the Laois senior football team ahead of tomorrow’s Allianz Football League Division 4 final against Carlow in Croke Park.

According to the report, Walsh met with his manager John Sugrue ahead of training on Thursday night and was informed that he wouldn’t be on the squad for the clash with Carlow.

It’s not known if he is gone entirely from the panel or just for Saturday’s game. The Ballylinan man has been in top form for Laois in this Division 4 campaign and is the top scorer in the entire country with 4-41 in six games. – Laois Today
