Dromore Boy’s Birthday Ruined As Father Paints Bedroom Carrickmore Colours

Dromore Boy’s Ceiling

An 8-year-old Dromore GAA fanatic’s birthday was officially ‘his worst ever’ after his father’s surprise bedroom makeover ended in tears and accusations of deliberate tampering.

Kieran McCullagh, who plays under 10 for the club and never misses a match at all levels, was told to go to his room after the cake as there was a great surprise in there for him. His uncle, Kevin, described the scene:

“You could hear the screams. Young Kieran’s parents aren’t really into the football and trusted the painter to get the right paint for the job. Unfortunately, the painter was a Carrickmore man by the name of McGarrity who is now claiming Mr and Mrs McCullagh asked him for a bedroom of football colours, not specifically Dromore. The whole room is green, white and orange – not his beloved Dromore blue and white. A catastrophe.”

Jack McCullagh is adamant he told the painter to decorate it in Dromore GAA colours:

“I definitely told him Dromore. This is a handlin and a half. I tried to tell our Kieran sure it’s the Ireland colours and he cried even harder as that made no sense at all with pictures of Conor Gormley and Oz McCallan all over the show. And a big Carrickmore crest. McGarrity is accepting no refunds. He’s done this on purpose but according to my son I’ve made a balls of this.”

Investigations are suggesting that McGarrity has a history of this with stories leaking about deliberate sabotage across the country. A Tattyreagh mother claims he once decorated her daughter’s bedroom with Cliff Richard wallpaper after she had instructed him to modernise it with some singers from the XFactor or something like that.

“He’s a bollocks,” she told us.

  1. I’m sorry but I couldn’t let the erroneous reference to the Irish colours in the latest Tribulation go without comment. The colour Gold, allegedly, was introduced by songwriters for rhyming purposes. At least it is to be hoped that the reason was as innocent. But it is wrong to perpetuate this error as it denies the true meaning of the flag and the aims of those who put the flag forward as a unifying symbol for all in this country. Too many young people and adults (including broadcasters) appear to believe that the third colour is Gold when it is in fact ORANGE.
    Despite that I really enjoy the ‘Tribulations’ – Keep up the good work!

“since our apparitions, the part of us which appears, are so momentary compared with the other, the unseen part of us, which spreads wide, the unseen might survive, be recovered somehow attached to this person or that, or even haunting certain places, after death. Perhaps - perhaps.”
