#241

It’s made watching this much more intriguing.


#242

How sleep deprived are you?


#243

I got 7 hours last night and I’m feeling fine.


#244

God bless “ sucking boob “.


#245

This is the truth


#246

Great achievement to make the final considering the base Irish hockey is coming from. A credit to us all :clap:


#247

Does one have to be a protestant to play this sport?


#248

#249

Hockey is the most popular sport in a few of Limericks biggest secondary schools,

That’s a stupid and very ignorant question if you don’t mind me saying (I’m sure you do) but typical of a joyless sort like yourself


#250

That’s just a partionist Eire soccer mindset.


#251

We don’t tend to bother with that nordy carry on down south where your religion determines what sport you play or language you learn at school…


#252


#253

Hockey is huge in Limerick


#254

And in many catholic schools in Cork too


#255

I know, it was an idiotic question, unbelievable ignorance


#256

Steady on now mate


#257

I’d say it’s the most popular sport for girls in Limerick schools, Laurel Hill, Crescent, castletroy an villiers all take it very seriously,
You can’t get a spot for your kids in the hockey tots programmes running in a few places


#258

I fairness, the lady holding that sign doesn’t look to have played much of anything bar “hide the family bucket”


#259

My mother - from West Limerick* - played hockey for years…

*Admittedly she went to a posh (Catholic) boarding school in Dublin


#260

The all Irish language A school in laurel hill limerick were/are big into the hockey. The Celtic oo ah up the ra crowd wouldn’t be able to get their heads around that at all…
