Sean Ban Breathnach

…de Setanta Sports:

Veteran broadcaster Sean Ban Breathnach has rescinded his decision to resign as Cultural and Irish officer of the Galway county board.

Breathnach tendered his resignation at a meeting of the Galway county board on Monday night, citing a sense of disillusionment with the hostility shown to players, officials and supporters using the Irish language…

…"Every time these people hear Irish being spoken on the pitch they just seem to lose it.

"This is racism. When you hear people saying to players: 'what is that f*****g stupid language of yours, will you shut up and go back to Connemara and talk to yourselves,' you know you have a problem."
