THE Mayor of Kildare, Micheal ‘Spike’ Nolan, has stated that he is not ‘his brother’s keeper’ after an explosive article appeared in a Sunday newspaper alleging that this brother and former Lillywhite GAA star, Brian ‘Spike’ Nolan is a swinger.

The article, which appeared in the Sunday World dated July 15, alleged that the former GAA forward, who played in the Kildare 1992 Leinster final against Dublin, is involved in the swinger scene.

“I am not my brother’s keeper.” said Mayor Nolan speaking to the Leinster Leader. “I am concious of my mother so that is all I can say except that I never subscribe to the Sunday World.”

Meanwhile another brother Kevin Nolan who lives in Nurney described the article as ‘a major surprise’ and an ‘embarrasment’.

“I’m not my brother’s keeper,” he also said. “What he gets up to in his own life is his own affair.

‘It’s an embarrasment and it was a major surprise. I don’t have much contact with him.”

The Leinster Leader could not contact Mr Nolan who now lives in Dublin for a comment at the time of going to press.

Both Nolan brothers have the nickname, ‘Spike.’
