Hands up who is offended by Rory's confusion over his nationality?

Current count = 0

are you stoned?

Are you offended because I am trying to understand someone's thinking?

McIlroy has clearly offended you yet you state the current count of those offended = 0. You start a thread called Homophobe Thread were you state you'd like kick Craig from 'Strickly' , hence the question are you stoned.

No I'm not offended by McIlroy - I just wanted to understand his thinking.

Craig from Strickly calls end every sentence with the word "Darling". I'd like to see him try that on a gaelic pitch.

The catholic church in Holywood was bombed during the troubles. And, in the best of all english village traditions, Holywood has a maypole. Rory had no chance.

Interestingly though, Holywood does have a gaelic team (St Pauls) but I guess they don't yet have an engagement policy with Sullivan Upper.

Maypole being non Christian I believe so heyho! Fair f**ks to them... plenty churches burnt down on both sides during troubles but you managed to leave that out and interesting enough St Paul's primary school in Beechmount (falls road) never had a Gaelic team but had a soccer team!

Orior what is your point??

History, or wikipedia, would suggest that the Maypole was of German pagan origin and the rise of Protestantism in Britain tried to wipe them out, but they were reinstated under Catholic Mary. Either way, May Day has always been of significance in pre-Christian Ireland, too. God be with the days when the women would take an auld nude roll in the morning dew of the May Day grass to preserve their beauty.

Too many people going out of their way to be offended just like those dicks hounding James McClean over his stance on the poppy.

I 100% agree. Couldn't give one iota who he or anyone identifies themselves as.

Its not that simple either as I've relations in North Down and we've several lads from that area who hurl for us and there's nothing British about them, big into the Irish language, sport and traditional music.



I know a lot of Germans like that and I know a lot of Irish who are not like that.

I agree that he can do whatever he wants to do. It's the identity police that are the problem not McIlroy.

I'm not offended by him at all,I just don't like him. It's nothing to do about where he is from or what flag he waves or if he thinks of himself as being British or Irish. I just don't like him.Some people can't seem to get their heads around that.

If it's a personality thing, that's different. For me, it's his haircut ;)

Would you dislike him enough to shout against him coming down the stretch in the Masters against say some random Yank?

So the lad doesn't want to be marked out as a member of one of the two main tribes, and effectively alienate half of the community up here? Fair play to him.I reserve my contempt for plastic wannabes like Ruth Dudley Edwards.
