You’ll never beat the Irish…oh, wait..
Yes that’s right the Irish team have been knocked out of the Euro 2012 championship and it’s all thanks to painful ‘songwriter’ Bressie and his horrible rendition of a traditional Irish classic, ‘The Rocky Road to Dublin’. Well, the team played terribly too. And Trappatoni can’t communicate to the players properly. And we don’t have any decent players. So long Ireland, for another 10 years. In the words of Luke Kelly, ‘if you want to learn English properly, you’ve got to learn the lyrics of this song after listening to it just once!’
Maybe a few more goes, eh? Anyway, the Irish football team may not have done us proud but the Irish fans certainly did. They sang and danced their way around Poland in their thousands. When they were 0-3 down against the Spanish, they filled the stadium with song. The Spanish manager commented how such a display by fans, ‘is what football is all about’. A German TV station stopped commentating so that the German audience could hear the fans for a couple of minutes. Shopkeepers left notes in as best English as they could thanking the fans for their fun-loving attitude and good behaviour. So, when it comes to having ‘the craic’, you probably won’y ever beat the Irish! Come on the Green Army!!
