or following the exploits of his uncle on his Mum's side.
Mickey Mcdonald stopped playing for Armagh about 1987. Rory was born in 1989.

I am Rory's number one fan. But the way he has turned his back on Ireland is disappointing and I ask myself why. Is he a product of his environment as follows:

1) His secondary school (apparently mixed, but not much evidence of such)
2) His golf club (does the queen of england still hang in the entrance?)
3) His peers (rugger buggers and soccer lovin posh gits)

Clearly he never spent any time in Lurgan or following the exploits of his uncle on his Mum's side.

Correct, like everyone in the 6 counties Rory is a product of his local environment and its prevailing culture.

While Sullivan Upper has a small percentage of Catholic pupils and it is a non-denominational school, the prevailing culture is  British  His peers would be typical North Down inhabitants following Ulster and the GAWA.

Mickey probably played more for Glenavon than he did for Armagh.

So he shoulda went to a single faith school like St Pats Knock?

Answer 1 - He went to the school that offered him the best education.
Answer 2 - He went to the school that his mates went to.

My suspicion is answer 2

He's 10/11 when making that decision ffs!! BRA once a mainly prod school is now pretty mixed due to the area and decent education it brings... Sullivan upper is another good school in his local area would it be he went to school they was close to him decent education plus some from his primary school went also??

Bring out the baying mob pitch forks at the ready!! We've a hanging to go to!

He's a bollix, he wasn't ever honest with the public before so why should anyone believe him now. There is no such nationality as "northern Irish" so he might as well tell us he's feels like he's a Klingon. Personally I believe his loyalty is to Britain. I don't know why and I don't really care as it's no skin of my nose. I'm just calling out his bullshit. I've lots of Irish sportsmen I follow and like to see do well.

While the schools are partly mixed the children come from similar socioeconomic backgrounds and the culture in the school is a North Down version of Britishness.  Like every other child his cultural development was a mixture of school and the area in which he lived.

North Down is an area that is almost as far away from nearly any other part of N.Ireland in cultural terms as it is possible to be. Those who have issues with Rory would have the same cultural issues with anyone from the North Down area and certainly many outside Belfast would not believe that such an environment exists in N.Ireland.  Both protestant and catholics are fairly culturally similar in North Down.  They are an example for those who would like us to be much more integrated in our schooling and cultural interests.

I think you would consider most people from North Down as Klingons.

It's a lack of cultural understanding by those who cannot tolerate Rory's attitude to nationalism.

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??

This is Barry Mcguigan in reverse I never bought his bullshit either. McIlroy's utterances have more to do with Nike and brand Rory than identity. Personally I have never liked him, never will and I doubt he gives a fcuk. He should go and play for GB.
