As you can see I’ve changed the header because the 2007 RWC kicks off today. I’ve also finally gotten around to adding a link to The Fear of God that’ll stay over there on the right for the duration of the competition.
I was talking to one of the students about Ireland’s chances, and over the course of our conversation we got on to the subject of Croke Park and the IRFU and FAI using the GAA ground. And do you know what he said? That he would never go near Croke Park, that the GAA “shower” would never get any money off him, weren’t they all bigots. That he had no time at all for the GAA. Can you tell where he was from?
But of course, a southside Dubliner:”(yes yes, there are normal southsiders too, but this is such a cliche)”:.
And hopefully once half five rolls around there’ll be no thought of politics or history, just rugby, and a win…
Gutted! Revisited. There is no denying that Croke Park is an impressive venue. I haven’t been there all that often….
