My favourite random Cornish fact is that when a sizeable number moved to Mexico to work the silver mines, they introduced the Cornish pasty, which is now considered a local delicacy. Also, apparently, Methodism and... wrestling.



And football!

"It was Cornish miners who introduced football to Mexico. The country’s first football club – Pachuca Athletic Club – originally comprised exclusively of Cornish mine workers. The Mexican League of Association Football was established in 1902. The first championship was played that same year and in the 1904-1905 tournament it was El Pachuca that won first place. To this day the city of Pachuca still prides itself as being the home of Mexican football."

I thought they already had it a couple of centuries before that, kind off.
