Congratulations Ireland - GRAND SLAM CHAMPIONS!!!

"Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad." (BOD / Rala)

.....or a dessert for that matter, which is what happened to us at dinner on Friday at Plum Valley in Chinatown. Not impressed, plus portions were miserly!

Anyhoo, back to the important news, after 61 years of waiting, Ireland have finally won the Grand Slam at the 6 Nations!! As usual, it was an excruciating 80 minutes to sit through, not to mention having to endure the last minute Welsh penalty. Luckily, they missed (hard luck to Stephen Jones) and the memories of the near miss in 2003 were finally erased. Despite not being a hardcore rugger hugger, am happy for the team and for the country that they finally won! :)
