Liam Gallagher 'sometimes' watches GAA and says Dublin are 'always smashing them out of it'

Oasis legend Liam Gallagher is planning a massive party in Ireland for his mother’s 80th next year and has admitted to "sometimes" watching Gaelic football.

The icon, whose family are from Co Mayo, said it will be bigger than a music festival as he gets all the family together to celebrate Peggy’s big occasion.

Speaking to the 2 Johnnies on the latest episode of their podcast, Liam said: “It’s me mam’s 80th next year so I’ll be over then.

“That’s going to be bigger than Knebworth, mate. I’m going to hire the place out, get all the family, all the sisters and cousins.

“That will be good but no, I don’t go over unless we’re gigging really or doing the TV.”

The 2 Johnnies then asked had Gallagher ever watched Gaelic football, to which he replied: “I’ve watched it sometimes but Dublin are always smashing them out of it.”

However, Gallagher said he didn’t believe the curse that is said to be on the Mayo football team to be true, but gave some words of encouragement.

He said: “I’ve heard about it. I don’t believe in all that b******s.

“It is what it is. If you get beat by the better team, it’s just one of those things. It will happen one day.”

And with the 2 Johnnies getting themselves into trouble recently, they asked the controversial rocker if he ever feared being cancelled, Gallagher said: “Yeah go for it man, who the f**k are these people cancelling you?

“Unless they come around to your house and say you’re cancelled, what the f**k does it matter, the cancelled people just speak for the cancelled world! Bring it on you f***ing squares.”
