Leinster is different but for a small province of 5 counties which any success should be welcome by all, when Galway won the hurling any Mayo people i have met was delighted with their success. As for Louth/Meath i would not blame Louth for never supporting after Meath and the GAA stole the Leinster title from them. Dublin/Meath rivalry that would be like Celtic/Rangers without the religion element. No i never played football but would have playedy soccer.I don't get your logic there, are you suggesting that Wexford should support Kilkenny because they're both in Leinster? That's crazy. After Meath stole a Leinster title from Louth in 2010, your logic suggests that Louth people should have swallowed their pride and cheered them on as one of their own?
Have you ever played, yourself?
Anyway, here's the Mayo team of 15 heroes. The last Mayo team that won Sam produced 2 deputies for the Dáil. How many ministers can be found in this present lot?
