It reveals that, despite our stated revulsion for all things rugby-school, we're still suckers for the competence and character that is subtly conveyed by floppy hair, ruddy cheeks and southside drawls.TDs are more than twice as likely to have gone to a private school than the average Irish person (18 of the male TDs in the current Dail are privately educated - a slight increase from the last Dail).And yet, privilege found a way of bursting through; nearly a third of the current cabinet are privately educated - compared with just 7pc of the population generally.Perhaps less surprisingly, the judiciary and legal profession are stuffed to the gills with privately educated people.Poor kids, quite simply, cannot hang around for years hoping that enough people consume their music or writing for free, meaning that they eventually might get paid for their work.The result has been that pop music has seen an influx of supposed former rugger buggers.
Elite colleges such as Blackrock, Belvedere and Clongowes Wood (which has an especially high CEO count - including Michael O'Leary) made up 40pc of Irish company leaders.

Rugby is actually only slightly less niche than those other private-school pastimes, tennis or hockey.
