Ahern calls for All-Ireland football team

Irish Foreign Minister Dermot Ahern has called for the IFA and FAI to amalgamate and an All-Ireland league established. However, the status quo seems to be ok for the FAI who are content to:

strengthen the co-operation and development links that are already established with the IFA.

A NI fans spokesperson said:

We’ve had good times and bad times, but we’re quite happy with our lot

UPDATE It is reported in today’s Sunday Life that such a proposal is impossible under FIFA rules.PS I am looking feedback on my blogging here.
