Shane Geoghegan, a fine young Limerickman, was murdered last year by a scumbag who mistook him for a fellow drug-dealing lowlife. The town came out in protest and the whole country recoiled with disgust at the actions of the mutant fools who ordered and carried out the murder.
Subsequently, another honest young man, Roy Collins, was murdered by the same scum.
We’re still waiting for action from the government.
Yesterday, speaking at Garryowen FC, the rugby club of which Shane was a proud and respected member, Sunderland chairman Niall Quinn announced that his English Premiership club will play a charity match in Limerick next year in support of the Shane Geoghegan Trust, which offers children access to sporting and creative activities as alternatives to anti-social and criminal behaviour.
Quinn said that Sunderland would be willing to play a charity game in Limerick at the beginning of next season but this raises its own questions. Who and where? Limerick FC are just not good enough to make it interesting. It could turn out to be a match between Sunderland and an Ireland selection in Thomond Park, which would be appropriate. Shane was murdered the same night that Munster played Canada at the newly-refurbished stadium.
I was there that night and it was a great occasion. Our town was at its best, but was again dragged down by the moronic savage underclass that our PC society tolerates as if they had somehow earned the rights we so freely offer them.
