Best Answer

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.

Should GAA be professional?

No, for lots of reasons. Players play for the love of the sport and of their friends and community. That is a far greater driving force to play than for money. Professionalism would ruin the whole heart and spirit of the game. The GAA is the largest amateur sporting organisation in the world, so it would not be possible to pay everyone should it become professional. Most people do not want it to be professional. Many players are professional in that they already have jobs and careers and very few would want to play sport professionally. For these and other reasons, the GAA should stay amateur.
