Back after a short break to the banks of Mayo where a traditional Irish funeral had to be attended.
Poor old Granny C bailed out on us last week. Irish funerals are very strange and complicated; you spend 4 days mourning someone’s death while drinking so much that the family has to do a head count to see if anyone else had died from kidney failure. Death wish sessions.
It was really badly timed as well, the grannys funeral started in perfect unison with Ronan o Garas game commencing drop kick at Croke park last Saturday. My suggestion of wheeling in a plasma into the funeral home was gunned down by an angry female mob, gran would have been cool with it – she herself played no 8 for Castlebar rugby club back in the day.
The match itself was amazing. Yes there was a lot of controversy over “god shave the queen “ but thankfully it was respected. It would have made is out to be a nation of bigots and shit heads if we booed their nation anthem, the dignified silence showed what a lovely nation of sporting legends we have become.
Well apart from one or two muppets.
On the east bank of croke park a few English fans were chased by beer bottle swigging republicans who screamed at them to “ fuck off home and don’t be staling our potatoes and our wemon “ these tossers don’t even understand what it is that their protesting against, it’s a communal “ beat the brits “ club that they sign up to because the waiting list for Yoga classes is just to long.
Have a look at the picture above. This is the level of intelligence that was out in force last Saturday demanding the English leave our shores and take their “ foreign “ games with them …. Check his protest attire … LANGER.
