Stan's our man

• As chairperson and full-forward of Na Gaeil Oga CLG, Dublin's only Irish-speaking sports club, it was with mixed emotions I read of former Liverpool player Stan Collymore's new-found interest in the Irish language.

As a perfect outlet for sport fans and language lovers, we feel we are an ideal fit for Mr Collymore.

On a practical level, should Mr Collymore decide to combine his new-found passion for the Irish language with his traditional love for the round ball it may lead us to end our long trawl in search of a natural freetaker. Albeit we would have to train him up in the ways of the GAA.
