    GAA saves mans life!

    Taken from the Offaly Independent (a real paper).

    Miracle escape from winds</font>



    An Edenderry man escaped almost
    certain death by leaving a mobile tea-room, upended by wind minutes
    later, to get better radio reception in order to hear match results.</font>


    Sean “Hooper” Farrell, a member of
    the first football team to bring Offaly silverware in the form of the
    O’Byrne Cup in 1954, was listening for the results of the Wicklow
    versus Dublin O’Byrne Cup game last Saturday.</font>


    “We were after having tea,” he
    explains. “I always clean up. I had the radio on and was trying to get
    the results.” The reception wasn’t good enough however, so he went out
    to his jeep to listen to the radio there.</font>


    “I looked at the fuel hand and decided to go fill up,” he says, and went off down the road towards a filling station.</font>


    “I was only two minutes down the road when I got a call from Sean Og,” he says. </font>




    His sons Sean Og and Se-Se
    thought immediately that their Dad was in the mangled wreck of the
    mobile container that was thrown about 40 yards across the ground and
    turned upside down by gusts. Fortunately fate spared Sean from a messy
    death and he lives to tell another tale.

    He'd want to be careful that the GAA doesn't charge him for it.
    "This was the performance Ireland had been threatening all championship but had only managed to produce in fits and starts. Defeats at the hands of France and Wales had put paid to their title aspirations, never mind a Grand Slam, but yesterday’s emphatic 24-8 win shows that this is a team moving in the right direction."

      Don't be silly. It's not like the GAA owned the mobile home he was using.

            I dare you to look in the mirror and say "Frank Murphy", out loud three times. We'll see who's laughing then.
