Survey Reveals Tipperary One Of The Most Disliked GAA Counties

1012

A new survey suggests Co. Tipperary is one of the disliked GAA counties.

In a survey of 1,126 GAA fans across all 32 counties conducted via pollsters Bounce Insights, they got a clear picture of who each county considers their nemesis ahead of the big throw-in last weekend.

It shows that Kilkenny still sees the Premier County as their arch enemy.

Interestingly, Limerick’s dominance of hurling in recent years has yet to see them generate the type of resentment reserved for top teams with only 16 individuals choosing the Treaty as the team they despise.

On the flip side, Sligo are the team with the least amount of detractors among GAA fans with only one person (From Derry) out of 1,126 casting the Yeats County as the villains.

‘It would appear as though the 6-in-a-row chasing Dubs won plenty of admirers but few friends…’

Leitrim and Longford can also consider themselves as lesser hated counties having only received 2 votes.

Rachael Kane, spokesperson for Paddy Power, said “It would appear as though the 6-in-a-row chasing Dubs won plenty of admirers but few friends with our poll revealing that the Culchie/Dublin divide remains strong within the GAA. Success clearly breeds contempt, but that doesn’t explain why Mayo are in the top 5 despite not having won an All-Ireland since 1951.”
