Being born here in Northern Ireland, being Catholic, and declaring you are British is becoming a cardinal sin!
Golfing superstar Rory McIlroy has said he will rethink comments he made about choosing whether to compete for Britain or Ireland in the 2016 Olympic Games. Last week the Holywood young gun, who is Catholic, said he had felt “more British than Irish” – the remarks seemingly the strongest indication of the sportsman’s intentions to represent Team GB in Rio. But the 23-year-old two-time major winner and world number one at the time said he had “absolutely not made a decision” about who he would represent or whether he would compete.Speaking in Atlanta yesterday he said he may reconsider his position on the matter.
It is obvious Rory has been “pressurised” to change his mind. Shame on those who have influenced him. Being BRITISH, being CATHOLIC and coming from Norther Ireland …. forbidden!
