    Not wired up re'yt them lads. Once in Ireland on business and wanted the Daily Mirror.
    Not realising that in those days they had to be brought over by boat from England and were a day behind.

    The guy asked me " do you want yesterday's or today's". ? I replied "today's please."
    He looked at me and simply said " well yeyll have t' cum back back t' ommora."

    Yes!!!

    I've got right into it.

    My future father in law is from Laois originally. He put me up for a couple of years till me and my missus saved up for a deposit for our mortgage. Every Sunday without fail he had the Gaelic football or Hurling on.

    Better than the Premier league that's for sure.

    This is a typical Irish story.

    I've noticed that the Irish don't beat around the bush. Nothing is branded. You drive past a supermarket, and it's called "supermarket", drive past a farm and its called “farm“.

    I don't know what it is. Whether it's the fanaticism about it, where everyone seems to support it and have their county's colours draped outside their house, or the sheer 90s-ness about it. I'm hooked.

    Once helped my brother in law fit a UPVc door for an Irish couple.
    It was Christmas and knee deep in snow. The lady paid our kid and then asked
    who was driving. He told her he was and so she handed me a small glass and told
    me to sup it in one go. Jeeeezus. I had a right glow for about an hour.

    Learned it was potcheen. Never tasted anything like it. Told us that's why in Ireland
    lemonade was coloured red, because folk were smuggling pocheen into the Country in
    lemonade bottles.! Two or three of them you'd be flying round the light.

    Except for the shape of the ball, plus the goal posts and shape of the pitch , I agree it exactly the same!

    You should have watched Ayr Utd v Kilmarnock Friday night. Proper cup tie/local derby. Great atmosphere, some right tackles flying in. Weren't too much free flowing football, but you can't have everything.
