A Limerick A Day

Brian O’Driscoll has said rugby should not be viewed as ireland’s national sport

BOD spoke to the papers to say
He will not get carried away
Later on in the year
All the culchies will cheer
As bogball once more has its day

    Sure aren’t they looking to move the pro14 final because it clashes with the champos league?

    There are more GAA clubs in Co. Cork than there are rugby clubs in all of Ireland.
    More people attended last years ladies All-Ireland final than attended all of the womens world cup competition.
    Enough said.

      That’s what he is saying though.

      Also, more people attended last years ladies all Ireland than attended any womens sporting event anywhere in europe (possibly the world)

      National sport is tribunals, inquiries, anything except police investigations and convictions of the management classes.

      more Irish people attend premier league matches than hurling, football or rugby matches?

          I doubt it

          but, if so, i’d say that has more to do with television coverage than interest

          1. Cian

            Considering you need to pay for premier league matches, that would suggest interest rather then nothing else on telly.

            But I don’t know. Are we talking about counting the number of people that watch one (or more) match? or counting the number of matches for each person?

      no, good crowd but top deck in the east stand had a few paches of emply seats,. then again the Saracens fans knew what was coming!!! COYBIB!!!

      While neither that nor the semi vs Scarlets was a complete sellout, they weren’t far off. They were both more or less full, couple of blocks had capacity left
