Just back from a successful and highly enjoyable second trip to Southern Ireland courtesy of Groundhop UK. The usual good mix of footy and sightseeing, with the added bonus this year of free time in Dublin to explore a bucket list of crafty pubs in the company of Aussie Jack and like-minded others. Two Premier grounds and another in Division One, and although the fourth game – at UCD – was subject to a last minute cancellation, the bulk of the party went to Croke Park to see the Leinster GAA final – hey well at least they use a ROUND ball!
Roll on next year!
Oh and here’s me with the Irish Cup outside Richmond Park, the home of St Patrick’s Athletic, where we were given a pre-match tour!
