It's obvious that like GA lines we are going to have to start even earlier to beat the belgians...



Limerick is most famous for

There once was a man from Nantucket
Who kept all his cash in a bucket.
But his daughter, named Nan,
Ran away with a man
And as for the bucket, Nantucket

This is more like it. The official "official" concert thread as it is supposed to be. Thanks, Andrew, funny and informative as usual.

You should mention Munster rugby, one of the most successful teams in the history of the European cup whose home ground is Thomond Park. After several heartbreaking defeats Munster finally won the trophy in 2006 at CARDIFFS MILLENIUM STADIUM scene of next weeks legendary Bruce Springsteen concert

"There was a young man from Bengal

Who went to a fancy dress ball.

He thought he would risk it

And go as a biscuit

But the dog ate him up in the hall."

Nice clean one for the kids that. Nice clean one for the kids.

This Limerick is for all the Patti-haters:

When Bruce came with Patti in tow

He let all his female fans know:

I like you a lot

But Patti is hot

So don’t keep crowding me so.

Or how about this one (Limerick inspires me)

When Bruce imported the strings

And sang of the junkman who sings

The folks were amazed -

Some looked quite dazed

And ready to sprout tiny wings.

1973%20Limerick%20All-Ireland%20Senior%2

For the Nowlan Park - which I understand is a hurling venue - thread in two weeks we'll need more info on this particular sport.

I actually asked one of my Irish colleagues at work if hurling was like Lacrosse, but she had never heard of Lacrosse.

i'll have to leave it ti slane or another irish laker to explain how hurling is totally different to lacrosse but to me they are similar in some ways here is a definition i gfound

"First, the basics. Hurling is best compared to lacrosse. Hurling is an outdoor ball-and-stick game played with fifteen players on a field larger than a soccer pitch. Whereas lacrosse is played with netted sticks, hurling is a played with a flat wooden club, and the ball is struck by swinging the stick vice flinging it as in lacrosse. Hurling players can catch and carry the ball in the hand, but can only pass it by hitting it with the stick, kicking it, or slapping it by the hand."

thanks to both of you.

I won't pretend to understand the rules, but it seems to be a fun sport.

Seems to be a very large field there in Kilkenny....
