Hmmmm, if my history serves me correctly, weren't a lot of Aussies descended from Irish men who were sent there by the British to be slaves and to be punished for petty crimes??
Anyway, the Irish play many sports too!!
Hurling with proper wooden sticks!!
And of course, we all know Ronan O'Gara of Irish Rugby
just saying Irland is still pretty damn manly in the sports department!! And hardly any protection gear, least, no shin-guards to be seen on the hurlers!! Though i do fail to see what's manly bout putting ice with drinks in a ruck, innovative yes, but manly??
