Crossmaglen's Arron Cunningham is not the first player to allege that he had been subjected to racist abuse during a football or hurling match, but the timing of his complaint meant the GAA simply could not ignore it.
Other players, from his own father Joey (who played for Armagh) to former Dublin star Jason Sherlock and current Wexford dual player Lee Chin, have voiced similar complaints but usually in a more low-profile way at club level or retrospectively.
