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.

this is hilarious!  Only in this backwater where people carry around this baggage with them is this an issue. In every other other part of the world, inc Britain, McIlroy is Irish. In Australia, Africa, the USA, McIlroy is seen as Irish, not British, not Northern Irish. The fact that many on here are hating on a chap they don't know because he won't nail his colours to their mast is why we're where we're at. Up a ra !

Personally, I like Rory and want home to win the Masters this year. But I'm just trying to understand why he has this predicament. Is it because of his upbringing, his schooling, his mates, his environment? As I said earlier, Holywood tries to be more english than anywhere else in the occupied six with their maypole.

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!

I'm not looking to hang Rory. I'm just trying to working out where he got his complicatedness.

It's down to where he's from.... not complicated at all

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.

Rory is Rory and I don't think he would have thought much about the politics of the place he was born and reared in, (not uncommon with a lot of the youth today) and all of a sudden due to his sporting prowess he's had to make a decision with political implications rather than just a sporting one and rather than seem to offend anyone make a dick of himself with the zika virus nonsense when every man and his dog knew the real reasons.


He supports Ulster Rugby (9 counties BTW) and GAWA (not my particular choice) but so f**k, he's a good golfer, so let him plough on at that.

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

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.

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

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.
