Ireland v France in Dublin

I forgot to mention in this morning’s post that I walked past the above bus on the way to last night’s concert. It is evidently the official transport of the French rugby team who played Ireland today in the Six Nations this afternoon. I didn’t spot any of the French players at the concert, although I did help a couple of friendly France supporters with directions en route.

As expected, it was a cracking match between two excellent teams, a real heavyweight contest, with no quarter asked and non given. But, in the end, Ireland ran out convincing winners by 32-19 despite the absence of a number of first choice players. It was a very impressive performance from Ireland and the best game of rugby I’ve seen for a very long time.
