It’s probably more simple joy than pride but there’s definitely a sense of pride in supporting a soccer team. You don’t have to agree with that we’re all at different levels of investment in support and we all feel it differently

You hope Liverpool "sink like a stone" because I called them "my club" so any pettiness works both ways as I see it:

We are not very good at supporting our own in this country. That is the bottom line. The OP could equally ask why do Irish people buy so much online from foreign companies. Why do we even import 72,000 tonnes of potatoes a year, much of them from Britain? (easily verified by google). If we cannot grow our own spuds what hope is there of watching our own soccer players instead of foreigners?

The answer to that though is fairly simple too though, a mix of ignorance, snobbery, lazyness and falling for marketing.
Any room in there for the standard of football?

Bohs and rovers are on TV tonight if ye want to tune in.
Bohs missing their striker and back 4 but will be a good atmosphere nonetheless.

Rovers have lost 7 of the last 8 against bohs.

You can still marry foreign women but can still look at Irish women.

It's always a cagey match though.
But crowd is always good.

In those 8 games rovers only drew one. Would be like Liverpool losing to Everton 7 times out of 8. Stephen Bradley the rovers manager said it was bohs Cup final a while back so it's even better with that record.

thanks for explaining it to me in EPL terms that I can understand. Still not sure I get this league of Ireland thing fully though, is it still 3pts for a goal and 1pt for over the bar?
