Irish eyes are smiling ...


Woohoooooo!! I tuned in, I groaned, I cheered, I disappeared out to the kitchen when the Welsh scored, only to return, heart in mouth, for the final few minutes after the drop goal went over. One day, just once, I'd like to be able to watch something live, in full, knowing that we were going to win! It's not just Irish rugby - I always feared I'd put the mockers on bankers like Steve Redgrave. Brian O'Driscoll, up there - Man of the Match again!

And, to cap a terrific day - England won the Women's Six Nations Championship! Which I can legitimately celebrate too - I'm only half Irish. And a quarter Welsh, so it was never going to be a completely wasted day, was it? Congratulations to Catherine Spencer and her team.

Is there anybody you couldn't find a reason to support Scatty? lol :o)

I predicted that Ireland would land the grand slam in the first weekend of the six nations, so I'm feeling quite pleased with myself for getting something right for once. I also predicted England would stuff it up badly! Lol :o)

The French. Not that I'm shallow or anything but the Italians have Baggio and Totti. I know they're footballers but they all look the same with their shirts off ... ;)
