Gaelic football attack laughable

Published 11/08/2015

I am writing in response to Mike Burke's laughable letter (Write Back, August 10) in which he bemoans the apparent tunnel vision of the staunch GAA supporter.

Gaelic football is not played in other countries because Ireland wasn't a large international power and doesn't exert any influence on the customs of other countries.

Mr Burke points out the lack of competitiveness in Gaelic football. Ironic, considering professional soccer is probably the most uncompetitive sport in the world, with every major league dominated by the same two or three teams.
