Harte to believe

Irish supporter in full regalia

Our guesthouse is currently full of Irish, who have descended on the place in force to support their team. Before the game, as they prepared for the confrontation with Spain, all was smiles and optimism…

My sympathies go out to them and their spirited team, who more than exceeded my expectations in the absence of a certain Mr. Keane. I really thought they could win the game in extra time – they certainly began to outplay Spain… but it was not to be.

  1. Great Irish performance and a dynamite run out by Duff.

    What had he been taking?

    Clearly a high dose of Irish inspiration.

    He was magnificent.

    Performance of the tournament so far.

    Shame about them penalties though.
