On the upside, I would like to point out that Liam seems to have learned to spell the word 'argument'. Maybe in another fifteen years, he might work out what the word means.

I imagine Eoin was referring to hurling specifically, rather than Gaelic Games. There's plenty football in Connacht & Ulster, like.

As for the lack of hurling, I blame the drumlins. Fierce hard on the old sliothars, are the drumlins.

One of the first hurdles when a small group of enthusiasts abroad try to get some Gaelic sports going is often to ask the local soccer/rugby/hockey/... club if they can borrow their pitch.

Oh the irony.

Are you a complete and utter fuckwit or do you have to practice?
Why oh why should we ever dilute our Gaelic heritage? It's been diluted enough over the centuries.They are Gaelic Games. Get over it.

It doesn't matter what you call them, some unionists will never play them, full stop.

Fair point. I'll stick to my rabid republican WUMming comments.

Troglodyte.

And reputedly my family were in the first wave of Gaels to arrive here so don't be lecturing to me about "diluting our Gaelic heritage".

You're probably some bastard offspring of a garrison town.

My crannóg is bigger than your crannóg.
Yeah, well, my round tower is higher than your round tower.
Yeah, well, my sheela-na-gig can spread her legs wider than your sheela-na-gig.


Ah, stop, do.
