    I remember the debate about 50 metre swimming pool during and after Atlanta Olympics in 1996 and the gold medal haul there

    The Irish State does invest in certain sports and sports industry's

    Think of the tax breaks for the horse breeding and horse racing industry. Huge tax breaks have led to a world class industry with Irish equine success in all international races, both on the flat and over the fences.
    Imagine if this sort of investment had gone in to other sports?

    My hole. Just saying it doesn't make it do. There was some charity athletics thing in Croker recently, county players v Gillick and O'Rourke kind of thing. Media commented that Croker could host it because it is exempt from 42 these days.

    You are wrong.

    But move on and answer the question. Ignore rule 42 of you have to

    There is a levy on bookmakers that goes directly to the horse industry. Only problem is 60% of Irish betting is on football.
