    Interesting that BS. Would assume it's different backgrounds and all that. Dublin having a much more mixed community might have helped that.

    Personally, growing up as CoI playing GAA in my own club, it was frowned upon by a lot of people that I'd have got a place in the team ahead of anyone. My parents regularly experienced hearing people comment on it on the sidelines, something I only largely found out about in the past few years to any extent, but knew it was there in the back of my head all along.
    Playing in the team, I used to get asked stupid things like whether I supported Rangers or Celtic in Scotland by my own team-mates, in a way that you knew they were just being hateful to get a laugh amongst themselves. That I didn't support either was never an acceptable answer to some lads there. Things like that never really stopped me playing though, I just got on with it and played football until I was 20, because I loved playing the game. I know a couple of friends who were in the same boat with different clubs too. I suppose my own experience doesn't translate to everyone though, but I experienced plenty of crap in my ten years or so involved in the game. I recall a few newspaper articles I've read over the years too that would suggest it's not only me, but maybe not as common as I had assumed it to be, Darren Graham being a famous case as you say.

    As for the subject itself, I have a habit of looking up one thing in history and ending up on a whole different subject every so often. After reading a Facebook post on Wolfe Tone, about him being captured and held prisoner in Letterkenny, I ended up reading up a bit more about him and for some reason ended up reading about Sam Maguire via Michael Collins, however one led on to the other via a few other people again. Just a random piece of information that threw me off given my own experiences within the GAA.

    Dickens' classic "A Tale Of Two Cities" was first serialised in two English local newspapers.

    It was the Bicester Times, it was The Worcester Times.

    Local gun shop, which also sells a range of outdoors/hunting gear, had a sign a couple of years of ago saying - "Now is the winter of our discount tents."

    I heard he committed sewer-cide after he was arrested.
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.
