If Ireland play regular players from their AFL Competition, they won't win, but if they supplement this with their Gaelic players or players over here, they will be very hard to beat. Lets hope USA or SA have improved enough to challenge both NZ and PNG.

They've said who they are going to play - guys from ARFLI and guys based in Australia.  I'm not aware of any purely "Gaelic" players (except for the one on his way to Richmond). 

Of course many players from ARFLI play both footy and Gaelic football, or possibly footy and Rugby, same as e.g. New Zealand.  And the same as NZ there will be players based in Australia.

So I reckon the only real difference in selection methodology between Ireland and say NZ is that Ireland has a few more based in Australia, including players with some AFL list experience.
