Confederate flags are to be confiscated from fans by Cork GAA

Tracey Kennedy (Cork GAA chairperson) has stated that Confederate flags will be confiscated from fans.

Cork fans commonly use other flags from around the world that include the colour red.

Although it mainly symbolises the pride of southern America and rebellion, it has been criticised for its use in supporting slavery.

Only recently, NASCAR banned the flag from its racetracks.

Kennedy stated in regards to the flag that “It has no place in our grounds or in supporting Cork teams”.
