The man behind THAT Conor McGregor song has written a 'diss' track on the Kildare v Mayo fiasco
“F**k all the suits sittin’ up in Croke Park, the money-grabbing bastards, where do ya start?”
What started as a run-of-the-mill All-Ireland Football Qualifier draw on Monday morning has become the GAA story of the summer, as Kildare GAA have stood up to the top brass and refused to face Mayo in Croke Park this Saturday night.
You’re probably aware of the context at this stage, but in case the ridiculously good weather has proved too much of a distraction, you can read all about what’s led to the impasse here.
Kildare’s refusal to play the game at GAA HQ has led to a huge groundswell of public support for the Lilywhites, with the hashtag #NewbridgeorNowhere gaining significant traction since Monday evening and a number of high-profile GAA figures coming out in support of manager Cian O’Neill and the Kildare county board.
And that’s not all.
Kildare also have the support of singer Mick Konstantin, who you may remember as the man who penned the song ‘There’s only one Conor McGregor’, a tune which went massively viral and even earned an invitation to McGregor’s bout with Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas from The Notorious himself.
Konstantin, who plays a bit of GAA himself with Celbridge and played for Kildare at under-21 level, posted his latest ditty on Twitter on Tuesday, a catchy number with his trusty ukulele which backs his county men and sticks it to the GAA in the process.

Newbridge or nowhere? Hopefully we'll find out soon enough.
