Rugby is a professional sport and teams train more, play more, the media have far more access to players so of course there will be more media coverage of the sports
This whole thread is a cluster f**k.
The GAA is the most popular sport and gets the most attention, and the most support.
Rugby and Soccer will always get some attention as there is a national team.

Theyre not near the same and you know that. Give over talking about holier than thou approach considering how you post."]Which 2 players have Irish Parents??
Finlay Bealhams parents grew up in Australia
Billy Burns parents grew up in England
Rob Herrings parents grew up the South Africa
The other 5 Aki, Lowe, Gibson-Park, Roux, Stander had zero links before the IRFU asked them to play. CJ Standers father even said he had never heard of Ireland before the IRFU contacted his son CJ.
That is 8/24 or 1/3 of the Irish team

The Irish rugby team are good ambassadors for Ireland. They are the only serious professional outfit we have and they represent the whole Island. Imagine Andy Farrell playing the same video Kenny did before an Irish game..
