    Today Ireland are playing England in an International rugby match of epic proportions,
    I know not what God or gods you are venerating, but please petition him or her or
    them on my behalf for an Irish victory, a defeat is too painful to contemplate and akin
    to a national disaster of Biblical proportions, thanks in advance Robbie.

    Despite being British, I've always supported Ireland against England in the rugby - but I back England against Ireland in the cricket. Just wanted to make that clear.

    Thankyou FMF, i find your support most encouraging! strange that i have never thought
    of myself as British, when one is brought up with some links to Ireland as you have and
    I to a limited extent, did the question of the struggle never taint your perception of
    being British?

    Shouldn't you be more concerned with Scotland trying to avoid the wooden spoon?

    although we have lost our games, we have not played that badly, we should have
    beaten France, but it matters not, today we are playing for pride. I support whoever
    plays the pomms at any sport, Ireland, France, Wales, South Africa, Australia, Sri
    Lanka, India, Pakistan, anyone, i doesn't matter, but i can tell your sweatin it PK. 😛

    Well I am not English in any meaningful way. So British is my nationality. And I am comfortable with it. Not being English is a key to it, I think. My Irish "ethnicity" does not translate - at all - into a feeling akin to being an Irish citizen. Which leaves only being British.

    but you were brought up Catholic, was the question of the Irish struggle ever an issue?
    In Scotland among Catholics there was great sympathy for it. ok, gotta go, rugby
    starts in five!

    Sure. But it does not alter my nationality.
