I'm on the non gaa discussion part of the forum - there's a clue there - which I find enjoyable rather than useful. The political & religious debates and the humour are worth looking in for. JOG - no particular reason why I'm not keen on GAA, I just prefer rugby and soccer. I never liked hurling, I enjoyed playing gaelic football at school, but I was always a soccer player first and foremost. I always took an interest in the international rugby games, but since I got too old to play any sport, I've found that I've enjoyed watching rugby more and more. I'm now at the stage where I prefer watching rugby to soccer and I wouldn't miss an Ulster match at Ravenhill. Drink probably plays a part in that too.Definition of famous on this thread is a bit too wide, imo. To qualify as famous, Shirley, a sports person has to be recognisable beyond the boundaries of those who are interested in his / her sport. For example, George Best, Roy Keane, Martin O'Neill, Brian O'Driscoll, Ronan O'Gara, Sonia O'Sullivan are people whose name and face would be known to many who have little interest in football, rugby, athletics or whatever. I've little interest in GAA, so alot of the names of 'famous' people I'm reading on here mean nothing to me. May as well claim that you've met someone from Big Brother 6. Just saying, like.
This site must be useful for you then.
It's the none Gaa section of a GAA website. I just would have thought most people on this website would have an interest in GAA primarily. If not, would you not be better going to the likes of politics.ie. where some of the primary content is political and religious debate. Not that I'm chasing you or anything. I just find it strange that someone would go to a niche website just to get their general section.
But given it's a GAA website, can you not understand how the definition of famous would include GAA stars, given the posters interests.
