Hold on... he didn't wanna go to the Olympics cause he's scared of offending his mates? His mates like?
He's in a position to be the fuckin Mufasa of ALL his (real) mates. Unless you meant he was worried about annoying Niall Horan? Then I'd buy it.
I think you've hit the nail on the head. He's brought up in a culture of supporting OWC and Ulster Rugby and his mates would all be british passport holders. (They're the people that want to know why they cannot vote Tory or Labour in local elections). So clearly in that environment Rory will have no affiliation whatsoever with Ireland or being Irish.
Which makes his delight at winning the Irish Open rather puzzling. His celebration looked pretty genuine to me.
I'd say there's a big number of nationalists / republicans on this board carrying British passports (though few would admit to it)
I'd always an Irish one then got a british one (mainly for handieness) and thats up next year i think, so will get an Irish one next time
This is a myth surely. Shame on you SE!! Not a South Derry man at all
Ah it was handy and cheapest at the time.
Just found out if I want to go back to Canada at all I need a Canadian passport and what with Brexit and all I'm going to need an Irish one as well!!
With that many passports I could be a spy for the CIA...
