    It would be nice if RTE broadcast this but I'd say the chances are remote.

    Excellent. Should be a comfortable win for the Irish depending on what team they can field but it's important to try and grow the sport in Europe, nice city to visit for the team and support anyway.

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.

    Forgot to come back and update this. Wasn't much of a contest unfortunately, Ireland won 70 nil. Still, expansion is good.

    Oh well, give me an easy life and a peaceful death.

    Hey, Great to see so many (all) from within the Irish league being selected for this game. 
    How come no pro players from English league were picked, by the result they clearly weren't needed and good to blood others, was that the case?

    I think so, and great it was too, for the lads slogging their guts out in the Irish league getting international recognition.
