It’s not even two months since the last gaffe

Most GAA fans will remember a dogged Mayo tucking Galway away at MacHale Park on Monday 6 June as they took home the Connacht Minor Football title.

The scoreboard showed 0-13 to 0-7, a result that didn’t flatter the hosts as they led from early on and kept the Tribesmen at arms length to take the title in front of a sizeable crowd.

But yet again, some attention has been stolen away by a misspelling on that scoreboard. And yet again, our Gaillimh played the game under the accidental moniker of ‘Gaillaimh’.

The mistake may be hardwired into the scoreboard and the spelling may be permanent once it’s set on the system.

But it’s still somewhere between funny and infuriating seeing as this is the second time the scoreboard misspelt Gaillimh in less than two months.

And it’s not the only place where easy spelling mistakes draw attention away from the action.

‘Galway Footballers Homepage’ Facebook page shared a picture from the Ticketmaster page and wrote in the caption: “Match tickets have gone on sale for May 2022’s Connacht SFC semi-final between Galway and Leitrim.

However, a spelling mistake was noticed on the Ticketmaster picture as their tickets page reads “Gawlay v Leitrim” instead of “Galway v Leitrim”.

English or Irish, the county seems to a perennial dark horse when it comes to typos.
