    Post The O' hAlpín brothers

    Seán Óg and Setanta O' hAlpín.

    Sound great don't they? Excellent, good Irish names, both hurlers on the Cork team and Setanta is apparently the David Beckham / Sex symbol of hurling today.

    He isn't. Trust me. Seems Mr o' hAlpín loved his culture enough to name his son after Cuchulainn but not enough to marry and breed within his own nationality, nay, within his own race.

    How enlightening for the GAA!
    Two friends for ole Jayo Sherlock gan dabht!

    Thankfully in today's All Ireland (it was a good match i have to say) Kilkenny got the Liam McCarthy, again

    DJ Carey, possibly the best modern hurler ever, and Captain of the Kilkenny team - Irish.

    I was astounded at how great those names were until you dropped that bombshell!

    Is that one of their pics you posted, I can't really see it too well.
    What nationality is their mother?
    By the way who do you think will win the final between Ard Macha and Tir Eoghan? My family came from both counties (mostly from Armagh though) so I don't know who to support. I don't even like the colours of either of their tops!

    So was I! Setanta is a wonderful name and there are Seán Óg's in my teaghlach!

    DJ Carey in the picture. Can't complain about him at all, good Irishman
    I couldn't find any pics of the other two.Honestly though, someone mentioned Setanta to me and said he was a giant (6'5) so I was expecting to see a real Cuchulainn...no such luck!
    The mother is definetly African, of whereabouts I couldn't say.

    I might have to give Tyrone my bet there...but don't trust me I thought Corcaigh had a great chance in the 2nd half today for awhile!

    Oh no, not more negros! It's bad enough that we've got Clinton Morrison playing at Lansdowne! Maybe the father thought they'd fit in more with those names.
    Wishful thinking there!

    Okay, I'd better bet on Armagh then!
    I can't decide who to adopt. I could also adopt Derry as it's my families ancestoral lands. I decded to make my choice based which colours I liked best (like a REAL fan. lol!). None of them are appealing! Tyrone wouldn't be too bad other than if I wore the Red Hander's top around here I'd probably be mistaken for a loyalist and attacked!

    Think I'll just support Mayo instead for no reason other than having the best top (with Kerry and Donegal coming in 2nd and 3rd)

    Arnotts? Is that as in the insurance people, where people used to have stickers on their cars saying - "We Arnott insured ". Another reason not to support the Jackeens! lol!
