Not the first time something has gone over your head and it certainly won't be the last.

There is no Catholic club in Liverpool, both started by the same Methodist people.

Everton also have an Anglican Church in their ground so no idea where this catholic thing has come from

Jesus, I'll never get the obsession with this narrow view of the world we live in. You were born/live in Ireland therefore you must support all things Irish over all else. Support Irish soccer teams over English etc.

Who cares. If you are genuinely into the sport, then support which ever team you want. Support a team from Kazakhstan if you want. Ireland is not the world, enjoy all aspects of it that make you happy.
relax carry on is online now

Hoards of plastics in England too, not just Ireland.

I was born in South Oxfordshire (left after my 1st birthday) moved London (left at 6) moved to Ipswich (left at 14), Moved to Omagh.

I'm a Man Utd fan. I have no connection to Manchester or to the north of England.

Not sure why Irish people are giving themselves a hard time over non local support? Loads of English people don't even support their local team.

Well, seeing as he's clearly a Liverpool fan I'm guessing that's more a reference to urban rather than rural dwelling.

Because if someone has spent years watching a team, then they are more likely to continue following that team but also watching other teams.

I think the Catholic/Protestant thing in Liverpool has gradually died out since the 70's,but traditionally it existed-Everton were originally called St Domingo FC.
St. Domingo was a Methodist Chapel so again nothing to do with being Catholic

I'm English and don't have any problem with foreign fans following English teams.,although Irish fans aren't regarded as foreign.

They just like football, and yeah they'd support English clubs primarily but there's nothing wrong with that imo.

It bothers me an awful lot, because I love football and I love my country. I love our little league and I desperately want it to grow to be able to compete with others.

To think what could have been with our league ...If people had continue to follow it in their droves the way they adopted Scottish and English teams we could easily be on the same level of at least Scottish football.

We had 30-40k weekly attendances at matches in the early days, we'd top players, top facilities. We'd have a good go in European cup.

But emigration and the influx of radio and TV coverage killed it with support shifting to England and Scotland on the back of successful United and Celtic teams of the 50s/60s.

I dream of us having a support like the SPL, having teams reguarly compete in Europe be it EL or CL but without support, without bums on seats that will never be achievable.

And when did you become a SR fan? They were very successful during my formative years, thinking not bloody Rovers again!
Mid 90s when I began to go to games aged 5/6. Id a wait of 15 years before we had a permanent home and see us lift some silverware for the first time!
