Some see it as representing Irish culture which they do not want to be part of, mainly in Northern Ireland. However, many Protestants do play GAA and there has even been a President of the GAA who was a Protestant. Also, the Sam Maguire trophy, the most important trophy in Gaelic Football is named after a Protestant. He was very much involved in the GAA.
