Any minority sport is going to rely on heritage players if it can. The trick is to use them as best as possible to increase income and popularity. It's nonsense and a real lazy argument with absolutely no understanding of how popular Soccer is in Ireland. It is huge and is certainly not a minority sport. It is widely played and thousands travel across the water every week to watch games. People have a huge connection with it and Ireland have always had plenty of top flight Soccer players. Any heritage players supplement that. It is not a case of an entirely false and artificial team playing a sport that no one plays, few watch and hardly anyone has any connection to.
