Doesn't Cork legend Teddy "have a double" McCarthy. have form for drink driving also?
It could have been him rather than Halvey up for manslaughter don't forget!
Going off on a tangent doesn't excuse GAA players behaviour.

UPCOMING RUGBY STAR ASSAULTED OFF-DUTY GARDA IN LIMERICK CITY
13 July 2012
A rising star of Munster and Irish rugby assaulted an off-duty garda after a night out in Limerick.
19 year old Craig McCallum of Pike Avenue, Garryowen pleaded guilty at Limerick District Court to assault causing harm to the garda at Cruises Street, Limerick in the early hours of November 13th 2011.
Live 95FM's Eric Clarke reports
Off duty Garda Paul Bentley was struck twice in the face by Craig McCallum suffering a cut lip and a loose tooth.
The courth heard it was around 2.30am and McCallum was with two other men who were shouting and had identified the victim as a garda.
Solicitor Tom Kiely said the actions were out of character for Craig McCallum who had been out socialising in Limerick on the night.
He said McCallum has Munster and Irish Caps for underage rugby and submitted a reference from a Shannon rugby Coach who said they had high hopes for the 19 year old.
Judge Eugene O'Kelly said McCallum brought no honour at all to his club or rugby in general by behaving in such a thuggish way.
He ordered the rugby player to submit a written apology to Garda Bentley and to pay €750 compensation.
The matter was adjourned to October 25th.
