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. Apologies to all – please let me visit still..

"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.
