Jude, who attends school in Sligo, wrote the phrase in 2018, and was given detention last week.

Kildare GAA have awarded a 6th year student in Sligo, given detention for writing "Kildare for Sam" on a bathroom wall 3 years ago, a signed jersey and tickets.

Jude took part in a jersey day in the school last Thursday - he wore a Kildare jersey, and is the only pupil in the school with connections to this county.

The principal then asked him if he was the pupil who wrote "Kildare for Sam" on a bathroom wall in 2018, when he was in second year.

Jude admitted doing so, and was given 3 lunchtime detentions, of which he served one.

His mother, Olivia Fitzgerald Murphy, posted about the situation on Twitter, and it went viral
