There was controvery in Croke Park as Paddy Barnes flip-flopped like an Olympic boxing judge.

He hedged his bets as he was photographed in both a Kilkenny and Tipperary jersey before the game.

If you see Paddy out in the capital tonight wearing his Tipp jersey, remember he was a Kilkenny fan before it began.

Proving, yet again, that he is one of the best social media accounts on Twitter to follow after his travails in Rio were kept track of here, Paddy is the man and we won't hold it against him either way. 

We will be keeping an eye on whether he is wearing a Mayo or Dublin jersey in two weeks time.
