    Patti and I are going to Ireland next week and I feel like I am going into a time warp as far as sports go.  Other than rugby, soccer and bowling, what other sports are considered to be Irish friendly.  
    Sure, Notre Dame is the Fighting Irish, but as far as I know all sports involving people from Ireland have fighting Irish in them. People used to say “What if I went to a fight and a European soccer match broke out?”
