They’d Rather Jack Than Fleetwood Mac

at

And who among us could blame them?

This afternoon.

Walkinstown roundabout. Dublin 12.

Via The Echo:

Irish football supporters came out in force this afternoon to remember former Republic of Ireland manager and legend Jack Charlton, as ‘Put em under pressure’ rings out in his memory…

Any excuse.

    Heartwarming…or lung destroying, time will tell.

    Also, great that they all managed to get time off work etc, etc…

      ah give over

      there is a huge soccer population here in Dublin 12

      And several strong soccer clubs

      Niall Quinn’s old club Manortown, and Robbie Keane’s Crumlin United to mention just two.

      And back in the day of Italia 90 and USA 94, Sky Sports broadcast from here, The Submarine (now closed but still standing) on Crumlin Cross

      So between the resident population, which has a larger than average retired community, you would have many families with members of one of many clubs, you would also have loads of lads on shift work, or working locally, either in the Corpo, on Ballymount road/ Kylemore Road/ Park West or in the hospitals.

      At a 50th Anniversary do for Manortown last year, over 500 former players and their families came back to Ireland, just for the Dinner dance

      It was only natural Jack was going to get a daycent send off from Crumlin/ Walkinstown/ Greenhills

        Nothing daycent about no masks and no distancing and them all singing into each other’s mouths in fairness

      Also, there’s still a nationwide shutdown due. to Covid. People work from home, kids are off school and would be on their summer holidays regardless.

      But yeah, everyone there is on the scratch, you blueshoight snob.

    No social distancing, no masks, over 200 people in the area… and gardai just standing around doing nothing?

    This is why people are tired of listening to the government on corona. If you very visibly let some large scale gatherings go ahead, but tell people not to do others, it just reeks of hypocrisy.
