GAA player's prank backfires after club produces the classiest of gestures
There are still good people out there
On Easter Saturday, Tipperary hosted 'Mayhem for Meningitis', an obstacle course similar to Hell And Back or Tough Mudder which involves getting very tired, dirty and cold.
And one man who took part was Ballylooby Castlegrace GAA player Paddy Kenneally, who completed the event with some of his friends and they managed to raise over €3000 (kudos to them all).
With an ambulance on the scene to tend to the needs of anyone who required medical assistance, Paddy saw a chance to wind up his teammates in their WhatsApp group by saying he had injured his cruciate.
With Championship just around the corner, obviously a few of the lads were gutted with his injury and while Paddy and his friends were getting a great laugh out of it, he received this message from his GAA club's Facebook page.
Red-faced by the incident, Paddy had to own up that it was one big lie and will go back training during the week to the bemusement of management.
What goes around comes around, big man.
