    Anything SBG related is a cancer to Ireland

    Paddy Holohan is the oldest 31 years old guy ever. He has a point about his irish genes.

    Seeing as his grandfather has first hand knowledge of ancient Ireland.. he may be older than he looks.

    Pro fighter just out of his 20's getting involved with politics. Probably could have seen that a mile a way that it likely wasn't going to go well. You need a certain wisdom to make it in politics, saying shit like that pretty openly shows a pretty big lack of it.

    Who gives a fuck what the wider public think? There's enough fans to sustain the industry.

    "Mr McMahon suggested some women who may be afraid or may have been attacked might want female-only classes, because there are some "scum men" out there.

    Mr Holohan replied: "Now, saying that, I just want to stop you on that, there is some fucking scum women out there as well. And I just want to say to you, there’s a situation that I heard during the week... somebody was underage, the [other] person didn’t know they were underage, the girl pursued the guy. Got whatever she needed, had pictures, had videos, and then said 'I want 10 grand'. "And that was, that wasn’t the first person, there was loads of them. What is that kind of situation is that that’s going on in society now? I have two sons. It petrifies me, petrifies me that somebody could turn around and say I’m literally just going to say that you attacked me if you don’t give me 10 grand. And people go, ‘no, that doesn’t happen’. It absolutely, I put my hand on my heart and tell you it does happen. And it is happening out there. So, what happens there?"

    That's a fair enough point. He ain't wrong.
