Its a good insight all right. In fairness, he made the correct career choice. I don't think he would have any regrets missing out on the 2010 all ireland final over what he has achieved so far!

You probably couldn't believe a single word of what he says.

what's also very interesting is that Ronaldo was pictured with a hurl in his hands for 30 seconds during a tour of Ireland one time

Lads come on I couldn't give a rats if he played Gaelic or not I just thought it was a fascinating interview that posters on here would enjoy. I had to go with the Gaa angle so admin would put it up.

Ah now Clondalkin, he's no Rory O'Carroll! There's nobody greater than that Rory.

Mcilroy threw the Tricolour on the ground in disgust after a fan handed it to him after winning some tournament,I would have no interest in him after that.

With all due respect clondalkin, who gives a flying f**k?

I thought it was a great article. Regarding throwing the Tri colour, he explains the reason for that(not that specific incident, but he said he doesn't feel one or the other and he is entitled to that). Mad the obsession the great pros have, tiger in the gym at 4am because he couldn't sleep, may weather is the same, mc Gregor. Anyone know of gaa lads like this? Also to the poster who said it's probably all lies, could they care to elaborate on or explain such a statement.

I put a comment up but it was not allowed either. Basically Mr McIlroy played one Gaelic match in National school. He has no interest in the sport- more interest in Rugby and Football.

No supporter of Dev but it was the Cumann na bAgel Party that initiated most of the censorship.

He told lies originally about his refusal to play in the Olympics for Ireland. He said it was about the Zika virus. Then he changed his story to not wanting to stand under the Irish or British flags. So he finds it hard to tell the truth it seems.

It would be interesting what McIlroy could do with a hurley. Could he hit the sliotar over the bar?

And also don't forget he said he felt more British than Irish.His political views has no bearing on my like/dislike for him though.

Wouldn't be a fan but then I don't like golf either.
Just saying.
