Well Done Leinster

What a day for the boys in blue. I'm delighted with the Leinster win and very thankful for the support from Munster.

There is a big welcome home party at the Royal Dublin Society (RDS) today from 2.30 p.m. in Dublin. Unfortunately, I won't be there as I will be watching the end of the FBD Insurance Ras 2009, which finishes in Skerries.

So, what do you think of Leinster's win? Leave a comment and let me know.

FBD Insurance Ras 2009

The FBD Insurance RAS 2009 ends in Skerries tomorrow. I'll be there at the finish! For non-Irish speaking readers, ras is the Irish for race!

Heineken Cup Final 2009

I'm delighted to hear reports on the Irish radio station, RTE, that there are lots of Munster supporters in Edingurgh wearing the red of Munster and there to support Leinster against Leicester (confusing, I know) in the Heineken Cup Final 2009. A marvellous day for Irish sport and Irish rugby. Let's hope Leinster do it and win!

Great Win for Manchester United

OK, it wasn't exactly pretty, but Manchester United deserve all credit for winning the Premier League again for another three-in-a-row. That's 18 wins in all, equalling Liverpool's record.

After the match, it was a little difficult to know exactly what Tevez was talking about when he mentioned "difficulty" in staying at Old Trafford. I think it might have been a problem of his understanding the English language. I'd love to see him staying and hope he does. Ronaldo might be on the move too, but the squad seems strong enough to succeed again next year.

Here's looking forward to a great 2009/2010 season and the 19th title !

Great Win For Leinster

It was marvellous to be in Croke Park yesterday to see Leinster annihilating Munster. What a performance! Well done to all on the Leinster side - players and supporters. It was great to see so many "true blues" there but it is always a pity to see so many Leinster people wearing red.

Nevertheless, it was a great day and a wonderful occasion at our national stadium. Croke Park was a credit to those responsible for its preparation and maintenance. The
GAA should be proud.
