Flying the flag for Ireland.

Report from the brother-in-law that no Irish flag flew over Stadio Flaminio in Rome this weekend. Instead, we were represented by a new flag featuring the crests of the four provinces, to accompany the rugby anthem “Ireland’s Call“.

If true, this development may not go down too well in GAA HQ, never mind the 800-year men around the country.

I’ll await an eye-witness report from our own 800-year man who was at the match in Rome. However, if deprived of both the national anthem and the tricolour, he may well have expired in a fit of nationalism.
