6 Nations Cup fever had me gripped for a several years and in recent years I got the itch to go and watch a 6 Nations Cup match live.
I missed out on this last year for the usual reasons – no time, no cash! Come November 2015 I set my mind on a seeing a match of the 2016 tour however the match I wanted to watch – Ireland vs England which in 2015 was held in Dublin at the wonderful Aviva Stadium – was scheduled for Twickenham, London and not Dublin.
Now you may say – hey what’s the problem in that? After all Twickenham is the home of English Rugby and I am a supporter of the English Rugby team. So why should I not want to go to Twickenham?
It’s not that I didn’t want to visit the home of English Rugby but I have been to England & London at least three times already and wanted to visit Ireland. So out the window with the England vs Ireland match and I booked Ireland’s last match of the 2016 6 Nations Cup vs Scotland which actually turned out to be screamer of a game. Saturday 19th March was the date and I also got St Patrick’s Day – in Dublin – all roped in also.
I just had to find a way of celebrating St Patrick’s Day and a rugby match without drinking beer! Not an easy thing.
I also got to see a lot of Dublin and its lovely people. The gallery below is just a small selection of photos (unfortunately none from the match as I couldn’t take my camera in with me).
