Rugby World Cup

I want to pay tribute to the performance of the Irish Rugby team in the World Cup, which has not yet concluded, in the UK. Having been involved in very physical games, they entered the quarter-final against Argentina minus three world-class forwards as well as commanding out-half, Johnny Sexton, and came up short on the day.

Rugby is the one true unifying force in this country involving players from every tradition on an equal basis. The 'Rugby Anthem', Ireland's Call, has words of unity without bigotry or oppression.
