Well done Ireland!
Well the Ireland Cricket Team has certainly lifted the nations spirits and made us forget about the recession for a day! Onwards and upwards.. But seriously a massive congratulations to the Irish team and in particular to their star player Kevin O'Brien. It turns out cricket can be fun to watch particularly when the Irish beat England at their own game! In an article in the Metro Herald this morning, I read a quote from Tony Kenny, who is the William Hill spokesman, that pretty much summed up Ireland's win: 'I guess it would be like Ireland losing a hurling match to England.' Brilliant. See below highlights of the match.. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rg3lMJvPQZA] In other amusing news, Fine Gael's Mary Mitchell O'Connor had a priceless first day in the Dáil! She seems to have lost her sense of direction or thinks it is normal to drive down steps on her journey.. Check out the hilarity! (Just in case anyone is wondering - no one was injured)
