Ireland shuts down when we play in the world cup. Yesterday I drove into town to join Martina in a pub to watch Ireland play Saudi Arabia. Driving in was like driving on a Sunday morning, before the shops open! There was barely a soul in sight and the pubs were packed! Of course, after the match, car horns were blaring for a few hours afterwards at the sight of people in the tri-colour or green hats or other green clothing.
We’re through to the second round and will play Spain or South Africa on Sunday. Martina’s working on Sunday so she’s not a happy camper. It’s the Munster hurling final too and Tipp are playing which she’d have loved to watch. Hopefully the shop she works in will close or something, as *nobody* will be buying books while Ireland play!
