Hate this, people behaving in a totally unacceptable way and it being explained as passion for the game.

How do you know it was unprovoked?

She was not acting in self defense. No one hit her first. She threw the first blow. She threw the only blows. What would you consider provocation?

Words can be provocative.

They have this new fancy thing called a court, this is where such defenses can be offered. No such defense was offered, however I suspect you already know this.

I am from Cork and I celebrated wildly when Cork won the camogie All-Ireland's that Aishling Thompson was part of but she is an utter disgrace in my opinion.
I wouldn't defend her for a second. Some Cork people have been defending her and the same people probably wanted Diarmuid Connolly hung, drawn and quartered when he decked that fella in the pub.
The double standards make me sick. Thompson is an out and out thug and a lot of other stuff has come to light about her in the last few months. She viciously assaulted an opposition player off the ball while playing for her club but got away with it because the ref didn't see it.

Yeah she's a very good looking and talented girl who has had issues in her life.
AFAIK she wouldn't be popular with her team mates which is one indicator. Certainly has anger issues and refs find her difficult. She does need to do a serious rethink and reset of her attitude esp for her own benefit.

I wish her well.
What? Why? And it's hilarious the way people are saying "she's good looking" as if that's a mitigating factor. One person said "fair enough, she's good looking" - and? That has zero relevance.

This is the kinda thing that leads to the double standard, but it ain't women propagating it.

Ah that's too much the other way.

But her behaviour was appalling, that's all there is to it. And now her attitude stinks.

Lot of stupid ***** in the country, no offence. If you play football/hurling/camogie you can do no wrong in the eyes of the judge. (I play football still)

Btw I have sat in corporate hospitality the last 2 days in Croker. Sickening status is given to GAA players above all else.

I don't get it. Maybe I missed it but not once in the interview does she apologise for the assault but only talks about how it affected her.

She endured nothing from what I can see. Once she's paid the 6 grand it's forgotten about.

Nothing against the girl and I hope she gets on with her life but she only talks about how it has affected her.
Thoughts.

No wonder were ****ed as a society
Says more about media in Ireland and the Independent group in particular than society in general. Complete rag, worshiping and glorifying D list Irish celebs and people like property developers and chefs as if they are doing something important or beneficial to society. I wouldn't eat my chips put of it.....
Key point is media still help shape society's behaviour and attitudes. the fact that we're at the point of repeatedly printing this drivel on once reputable news outlets is reflective of society as a whole. Why, cause people are buying it and lapping up this sh1t.

Media in ireland are just taking lead from uk as we tend to do with broadcasting generally. Still haven't stooped to daily mail levels but we're getting there.

AT has a good bit of sympathy for herself in the interview, complains that there wasn’t ‘protection’ for her, that there would be more for men. This is someone who committed two assaults! Delusional.

I wonder how long til we see her in front of a judge again. Says so much about today's Ireland: It's all about me and the effect on me. To hell with the victim.
Pity she didn't think about her victims mental health when her elbow hit her jaw.

Our justice system is such a joke.
