Your last paragraph is so wrong on so many levels and proves your complete lack of understanding of anything to do with the game. AGAIN real fans go to the games in their own city/country. Go to any country and you will see this
Most Barstoolers understand the game far better than you. Ah so you lost the argument so you just keep repeating yourself, posts like this are doing a disservice to the Airtricity league. Of course the EPL is good for Irish people, can you not see how happy Liverpool fans are? We both know my last paragraph is 100% correct, if you were a football fan you'd understand but your posts show a real lack of football knowledge.
The EPL maybe goof for Irish people but it's not good for Irish football.

That's the main thing, Irish football

This reminds me of a child in the playground responding to a slagging by saying I know you are but what am I. I'm no wum, there's nothing wrong with preferring football on tv as long as you also give live football a chance. The fact of the matter is your not able to prove that you know more about football than your average barstooler so its pointless trying. If someones knowledge of football is just the Airtricity league thats a very limited amount of football knowledge. A huge part of football is a clubs history, rivalries, great players, passionate fans and success and its in area's like these that EPL clubs are far superior. You cant just tell people they have to follow the Airtricity league, instead you need to try to persuade people like others on here have done.

I'd say it's more so a global sport. Every nation on the planet plays it.

Yeah that's what's its become probably because people from all over the world followed the English league and then decided to copy them.

Or maybe because it's just a fantastic game and any kid in the world can go and play it on a lawn, beach, car-park, street etc once they have a ball.
Doesn't matter who invented it.

Now that is just an idiotic statement to make.

This statement though makes the last one look sane. Just think about how long football has been being played all over the world and how it would have been physically impossible for people outside the UK never mind Europe to be following the English league.

Don't be silly, it's as factual as 11 players are on a football team. Compare Liverpool to Shamrock rovers under those categirys.. Liverpool have a far better history, Anfield on a huge day beats Rovers on a huge day etc
