Anthony Tohill was today announced as the successor to Sean Boylan's crown as International Rules Manager. He will oversee the sport here in Ireland, a sport which nobody cares about anymore, a sport that doesn't matter and certainly doesn't entertain.

to gain any sort of spotlight, although a bit of racial abuse never did it any harm either nor did it hurt Graham Geraghty's employment prospects as he was picked to stand for Fine Gael some years later, albeit terribly unsuccessfully.
