of course, now the media is going to put a sensationalist spin on it to infer that he said "sports should be banned on sundays", which was not at all the point.

One of the big distinctions between traditional Catholic and Protestant culture in Ireland is that the one community goes to Mass and then to the match, while the other stays in and did sombre things. It's the Protestant nations which have been closer to the idea that Sunday should be a 'day of rest, and I mean Rest'.
