    1. Actually Jack I personally like many people over don't celebrate saints days, though I do recognise the significance of the big win over the English particularly to what is afoot politically...

  8. Forgot to say Happy St Patrick's Day - so a belated one Heron.
    Do I detect an element of gloating? Maybe not - in any case it was a delight to see their joy on winning. I loved the way one of the players did a somersault when he got a try. I am not a fan of Rugby but I did watch the last twenty minutes or so after switching on for the news, and the exhuberance of the Irish crowd was a delight to see.

    1. Hello Pat,
      Thank you for the generous comment which is greatly appreciated and yes I am gloating and why not
      eh (?) Some reflected pride illuminates most of the residents in Ireland today.
      Very best wishes to you on this shared snowy day.
      Mel.

  9. Hi Mel - I saw the score and was able to advise a dinner companion that you'd won and the score! She was somewhat surprised ... we were at a St Patrick's day dinner at the church ... which was fun and had lots of laughs and chats. Love the titles of the beers - fun ... and I bet they were delicious ... cheers Hilary

    1. Ha, Ha, Ha !
      O very funny :-) isn't it nice to be the first with surprising news, a brilliant strategy Hilary !
      Quite obviously your companion had not been keeping up with Ireland's mastery of the game this season and hah you caught her out.
      I only drank the one beer for I have left the 'Sheep Stealer' for today, yesterday's beer 'Buck It' was delicious. I rarely drink alcohol these days for the desire to drink left me some years ago for no particular reason either, it just fell off me.

  10. Just remind me... did you win? Just been on facetime to an Irish friend, she I ought to say looked like she had played the full 90 minutes as left prop!

    1. O most definitely we won and with a fair sized majority Ireland 24 points to England's 15 points !
      and I am still celebrating... e'r having to type this with one eye shut because I am slightly inebriated...
      am sure that you can appreciate how it is with me - giggles and guffaws tipsy Mel xx
