ALL-England

Social media was awash with scornful remarks and disparaging comments this week after a Sky Sports presenter made the mistake of thinking Dublin and Mayo had faced each other in the All-England final last Sunday.

While reporting on the All-Ireland (Repeat: All-Ireland) game at the weekend, Clare Tomlinson appeared oblivious to the fact the game had taken place in Ireland and involved two Irish counties.

But unlike many figures in British media who make no apologies for claiming us as their own when it suits, Clare has taken to Twitter to hold her hands up.

"Still hiding under a rock after my horrendous gaffe about the All IRELAND GAA final," she tweeted this afternoon.

"Apologies to all – please let me visit still." she added.

Thankfully for Clare, us Irish are a sound bunch and wasted no time offering an olive branch, with one writing: "Relax "it could happen to a bishop " as we used to say …you will always be welcome here."

"It was what they call an epic fail! But we forgive you," tweeted another while someone else assured her: "There's always a fire in the kitchen."

OK Clare, you're forgiven – just don't do it again.

At this stage of the game, we’re used to our pals across the Irish Sea coveting what’s ours.

From the British media claiming Colin Farrell and Katy Taylor as their own when it suits them to discovering Netflix have categorised Brooklyn under 'Best of British', the whole thing is a running joke at this stage.

Unfortunately though for one sports broadcaster right now, no one’s laughing.

While covering the Dublin v Mayo game last night, a Sky Sports presenter made a gaffe of such epic proportions we‘re still cringing into our hands here at SHEmazing! HQ.

Despite mentioning Irish counties and running footage which included the Irish National Anthem, this woman was fairly certain that thousands of us had tuned into the All-England final yesterday.

That's right, the All-England.

Prepare yourself for this one, ladies.
