I’ve just upgraded my wordpress installation. Have to say I’m not too sure about this new layout thingy; but I’m sure I’ll get used to it. It is the first weekend of this year’s Six Nations! Yay! Ireland played France in our opener in Croke Park. I was there two years ago when we lost to that last-gasp try. SoRead more

I’m speechless. I have no idea what to say after that match. The first half was so horrible. Unless you were French of course. What is with Ireland and first halves in France? Remember 2 years ago? Although this was worst, because right up to the final whistle the hope was there. And let me tell you hope is aRead more
I am not, in general, an overly optimistic person. Especially where Irish sport is concerned. Hopeful, always, but confident that we’ll win? Rarely. And this isn’t a new thing. Back in the heady days of Italia ’90 when the entire country was caught up in football-fever I can remember being asked if I though we’d win our next match. AgainstRead more
Yesterday at work Bhí cúpla caíllíní ag suigh in front of the desk. Psychology students. And as they were studying they were chatting and got on to discussing suicide. Now I’ve always felt that suicide is something of a selfish act, because lets face it, it is the people left behind who have to deal with the aftermath. But atRead more
Well now, what to say about Saturday’s rugby? Do I use the old “a win is a win” cliché? Or the fact that Ireland won despite not really playing well is a sign of a good team? Or do I moan that they didn’t prepare and never looked like the team that played against England? Or do I skip allRead more
Hopefully BOD and Stringer will be back in two weeks for our match against England. Which we really really really have to win. But, horror or horrors, O’Gara has picked up an ankle injury. Eddie expects him to be fit for the next match, but you never know, and all credit to Paddy Wallace, but we would miss ROG. JustRead more
Well, obviously enough, with the weekend just gone my first topic of this post has to be… the role of the Catholic Church in the political life of Ireland.
Or maybe not.Read more
Dear personages looking for images of Ronan O’Gara drunk please go here, or here, Blogarrah is the site to visit. Personally, if the man wants to go out and get drunk then I don’t really care. Although his wife may wonder just where that hand was going Course ROG also did a strip on Sunday evening. Okay, so that wasRead more
The only laying down they did was as a prelude to rolling over and succumbing to the Ospreys’ second string.
Mwaaahaha I’m sorry to any, and all, Aussies, but dude, pwnage Also kinda proves ROG right when he said that the Magners/Celtic league is just as good as the English Premiership. Although yes, the Wallabies did put out a second string outfit, but you know what, so did the Ospreys. It’ll be interesting to see what happens when Wales playRead more
I’d’ve started this post with a Dude-like exclamation, only I did that last time, and I can’t be repeating myself. Not for a short while anyway. I guess Ronan O’Gara was proven totally and utterly correct when he said that Irish teams no longer have to fear English ones. After all, all three of our provinces involved in the HeinekinRead more
We’re all fans of Ronan O’Gara here but I am left with slightly bemused by his interview in The Guardian. [found via Blogorrah] Not so much for what he said, we always expect to beat England. But the English public and their team have a hard time believing that. They still assume they should come out on top every timeRead more

I’m sure I had an absolutely fantastic topic when I was walking to work, but then I got distracted by the two fellas who looked like winosRead more
