With a large number of immigrants from the Indian Ocean of Mauritius arriving in Ireland in recent decades, it can be reasonably stated that the Island is the Ireland of Africa, given that Irish names proliferate in the country, as shown by the number of players in the Mauritius National Team alone with Irish names in 2016-17: O’Brian Kévin Jean-Louis, Peter Donovan Colin Bell and Joseph Stephen Kévin Perticots from Champions Pamplemousses SC, Luther Murphy Rose from AS Port Louis 2000 and Joseph Duddy Éduoard of Bolton City Youth Club all plying their trade in the Mauritius Premier League as well as Kylian Joel Farley Yrnard playing for RC Waterloo in Belgium and Clency Rofique playing for Le Havre SC in France.
