Many don't have choice like Rory
Sorry to hear that young Mcllroy has been made to change his mind. However, unlike Rory and the Northern Ireland football team who have a choice, our swimmers, boxers, rugby players and amateur golfers have no choice but to play for the Republic of Ireland if they wish to compete internationally.
Hardly fair, but don't worry Rory, come September that'll be me and a few others in the stand at Ryder Cup/Gleneagles waving the Ulster flag as a wee reminder of where you know you're from. All the best now!
