not shocked about the top two - whenever i have been to dublin their are tonnes of man utd & liverpool tops being worn. when liverpool play at home the amount of irish and norwegians around the city center is amazing - it's not a myth.

i suppose the irish league not being that strong is a push factor to get over and watch an epl game. football tourism in general is massive. barcelona get about 9,000 tourists through the gates each match.
