GAA: future engine for tourism?

Interesting idea from two academics at the University of Ulster, who have argued that the GAA’s amateur status could make it an engine for increased sports tourism. One Australian aficionado suggested to Slugger earlier this week in Dublin that the popular International Rules tests could provide a powerful boost for the game over there.
