The use of the word Donnybrook is alive and well in Canada

Well I do live in Loyalist country after all, but ever since hearing this word from the forums I have now paid more attention and seen it used twice. Once in the local paper last summer to describe a fight at a gas station and now in a major Toronto paper about a scrum over electoral reform. :D

I think the rules are alive and well in Canada too!

I have wondered if that is the reason and if reporters are avid gamers?
