As celebrities tell us what they love about Ireland, here's a look at some of the things that we hold dear in this country
1 THE GAA
The GAA has made a priceless contribution to Irish life. Without it, young men from rural areas would have no chance of getting a middle-management job in a bank. And we might never have heard of the term 'no fault'. The most unique thing about the organisation is, of course, the parade before big matches. Where else would you see a group of handsome young men walking along in tight shorts behind a band? At any Pride parade, says you, upsetting a few older members of the association.
