Hurling, fighting and drinking.  In that order.

    Hadfield has the ‘this isn’t gonna be worth watching’ look on his face.

    When’s he gonna be handed the pint of Guinness anyway? It’ll be flat soon and the PR girl’s hands are getting cold from holding it.

    Why the “obligatory” pint of Guinness?
    Is the state totally beholden to Diagio?

    Oh, and Mr. Astronaut has his belt on backwards, but I don’t want to be the one to tell him.

      Agreed, the Guinness thing is pathetic. Our Tourism bodies and Ministry of Foreign Affairs seem intent on holding onto our reputation as alcoholics.

    Meanwhile back on Planet Ireland, astronaut runs into various headers, and spacers and gets a glass full of black stuff.
    But hey tis better than a puck in the gob.

    Am I the only one that thinks its embarrassing for Ireland to be proudly associating itself with one of the most damaging drugs in the world?
