11.37am, Sunday 24th September, Grafton Street, Dublin central, Ireland
Got a couple more hours sleep and watched Ireland devastate Russia in the World Cup Rugby – and last night I predicted Ronan O Gara would be the best thing about the game – you have to love those skin tight jerseys! – and so he did go on to be Man of the Match. They’re on the march now for those quarter and maybe even the semi finals! Well done to the Green Machine.
I just went down the street to get some coffee, and here’s the Dublin castle crest I was talking about, on my new umbrella. And here’s the statue of Phil ‘Thin Lizzy front man’ Lynott out the front of the Bruxelles where they used to play.
I have a stack of notes on the Grenache Day to write up, and I’ll be back later with my favorites from the event.
