Question for people from hurling areas

(Oldest Posts First)

So if I were in say Kilkenny or North Tipp, East Clare or South Galway for example on Sunday, would pubs give TV and volume priority to the AIF or the Man Utd Everton game as they clash and which would punters prefer to watch. I know that even in the staunchest hurling parts of east/south limerick it will be the AIF but in the city it will be the soccer.

Can I ask a different question. How many hurling areas will have club championship matches on Sunday. In fairness in Galway this year they are scheduled for either 1.30 or 5.30 on Sunday but for the previous few years matches were played at 3 or 3.30 on AIF final day.

South East Clare would Definately show the Gaelic but probably the soccer aswell. I think the All Ireland commentary would be on.
In limerick city nearby. You'd have both on and a rugby match aswell. I would say that Gaelic football isn't followed there but people would have the All Ireland on as it's a tradition. Probably only commentary if it was asked for.

My local a big spot with approx. 16 boxes will have it as follows
GAA X 12
Soccer by 4
Horse racing by 2
The only reason its four and not two for soccer is because its Man Utd

All Televisions prior to opening will have signage attached so all punters know in advance whats on.

In New Ross it depends on the pub. Some are soccer pubs some are GAA pubs. Small town so people will know which are GAA pubs and whih are soccer pubs

The real question that you need to ask people from hurling areas is: How sad do you feel about not being form a football area;)

Who cares what pubs are showing?
It is not like because it is All-Ireland final Sunday, they have to turn off the sports which will be their bread and butter till next May just because some mucker arrives in thinking they own the place because it is All-Ireland final Sunday.

You must be one of those Dubs who never leaves the city if you have to ask that question. Of course the All Ireland will get priority

Define a mucker. And I'll then define a soccer knacker

In fairness to my local there's a core of horse racing lads that are there over donkeys years some of which they've backed ha ha but the pub stays loyal to them no matter what all Ireland final rugby soccer regardless , boy does it drive the once in a while sports fan mad

It will be the Everton/Man Utd match in Fermanagh if Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh was right

Remember "Seán Óg Ó hAilpín.... his father's from Fermanagh, his mother's from Fiji, neither a hurling stronghold".
