A while back, there was a neat little graphic doing the rounds on social media. It was a map of Ireland, with lights dotted in a heavy spread right across the island, signifying each GAA club.

What could have made it even more interesting, however, would have been separate maps showing clubs that were exclusively football or exclusively hurling.

Chances are there would be a huge discrepancy north of hurling's own Mason Dixon line above Galway to Dublin.
