Meath GAA vice-chairman 'caught off guard' by David Bowie prank at board meeting

The county board vice-chairman wasn’t pleased.

DAVID BOWIE WAS a surprise inclusion in the votes of sympathy at a GAA county board meeting on Monday night.

The music legend passed away on Monday at the age of 69 after a battle with cancer.

And at Monday night’s Meath county board meeting, sympathy was expressed to ‘the Bowie family in London on the death of David’ by vice-chairman Peter O’Halloran.

The announcement was made ‘unwittingly’ by O’Halloran who revealed that he was ‘caught off guard’ by the prank, when speaking to

O’Halloran was reading from a list that is submitted by club delegates with the intention of honouring those who have passed away that were involved in Meath GAA.

“This is an item reserved for deceased Meath gaels who have given different levels of service to the GAA in Meath and is always given the respect it deserves.

“I was caught off guard and unwittingly read it out.

“I am sure Mr Bowie is entitled to a vote of sympathy but by the correct body and the correct manner.

“I will do my best to ensure that something like this doesn’t happen again and I am disappointed that a delegate took this action.”
