Gaelic football is not fit to tie the boot laces of soccer

If I may reply to Fred Molloy (Letters, August 5), he somewhat condescendingly, and you have to say unbelievably, talks of a soccer player being transferred from Manchester United to PSG for an estimated €44m.
The player is the 27-year-old Argentinian Angel Di Maria. Mr Molloy's letter is typical of the staunch tunnel-vision GAA supporter. I just wonder would he be so complimentary to Fermanagh if the impossible had happened and they had beaten Dublin.
I must be up front and say that as an Englishman my first love is soccer, and in particular the Premier League. I am of an age now where other sports can't hold my attention and this sport, Gaelic football, that Mr Molloy obviously loves so dearly, to me is a nothing but a mixture of two or three other sports.
