    Spent a bit of time compiling my top 12 irish sporting achievements of all time below
    These aren’t my personal favourites,Ive tried to be as objective as I can here, I put aside my dislike of rugby and have it fair consideration . When giving weighting to these considered factors like prestige, participation , global audience, difficulty etc. Horeracing was not considered. Couldn’t find a place in top 11 for rugby, id say if I continued the list the Kidney grand slam would come in around 15th and Schmidts one around 21 which is fair enough I think
    1.Italia 90-
    2.Japan/Korea WC 2002
    3. US 94
    2.euro 88
    3.rory mcilroy wiining 4 majors
    4. Harrington winning 3 majors
    4.5 euro 2016
    5.Shanre lowry winning the open
    6.Michelle Smith Atalanta 1996-she still has the medals
    7.Ronnie Delaney Gold medal 1500M 1956
    8. John Treacy Olympic silver
    9. Any of the boxing Olmpic medals
    10. Mcgregor Double Champ
    11. Sonia o Sullivan-various
    12. Eddie Irvine in formula 1

      This is so entertaining and the crowd noise is unreal!

        SA nullifying the quick offload so far has been impressive. But Japan are so dynamic, makes for superb entertainment.

            Ah but where would those soccer teams have been if the irfu didn’t let them borrow their pitch. The top 4 are basically achievements for the irfu and the rugby world because they are such a generous bunch of lads.

                If the Japanese prop did a Richie McCaw on it and turned his head in towards the turf in the act of falling then it would have been but on balance a yellow seems right to me.

                    Wayne Barnes must be on a promise tonight, wants this game over as quick as possible. Doesn't want to use the TMO for love nor money.

                      The tmo would have checked it nonetheless. Very weird decision

                        South Africa have been trash with ball in hand. Their forwards kept them in the game first half and won them it in the 2nd.

                                      I’m cheering for Wales now have a great chance of getting to final and would be great to see ex irish coach Gatland end his wales career with the biggest prize in rugby. I’m sure plenty in irish rugby feel the same right

                                        Harrington's 3 in quick succession beats Rorys 4, no matter where ya believe hes from. Harrington was over achieving and Rory under achieving

                                              Another Semi for Wales.

                                              That’s two semis for them the last 3 world cups.
                                              1 semi for Argentina.
                                              0 for Ireland with all their “best Irish teams”

                                              I’m shocked anyone can even defend it.

                                              Arguably Schmidt’s tenure was a failure, Wales should be the yardstick.

                                                      After disgracing ourselves against a tier two nation in the group stages. Obv no shame in losing to NZ but when the world player of the year can't find touch from multiple penalties there's shame in not manning up to an occasion.

                                                          We also won “the Euros” in 14 and 15.
                                                          Wales won it 13 and this year.
                                                          They reached semi in 11 at our expense after finishing nowhere in “the euros”.

                                                          So all this talk of us being a great team is bollox or all this talk of us punching above our weight is bollox.

                                                          I think there needs to be a serious look at what we think we are and adjust our expectation accordingly. I actually think there is ability to be a consistent semi final team given the talent we do see, and underage rugby is organized very very well, as are all the academies.

                                                          The question that must be answered is “why do we always bottle it on the big stage?”

                                                              Sport as a business isn't really 'sport' anyway.

                                                              Was coaching a bunch of 8 and 9 year olds this morning. I think people who glue themselves to the tv watching what they think is sport all weekend miss the simple facts of what sport is all about - fun, friendship, exercise.

                                                                      This is the really enjoyable part for me more so than the actual defeat on the field , the idea of marketing budgets spaffed against the wall and the massive contrast between how they were built up and what transpired.
                                                                      I presume some of the players are relatively decent people not into pissing on strangers and recreational sexual assault so I feel mildly bad for them in fairness

Works a treat at the Junior B level when you might only have 17 or 18 players and fellas like myself need a break. Get a lad who is also a fat fucker and half crocked on for a few minutes and I can come back on when another lad needs a breather.

Obv no shame in losing to NZ but when the world player of the year can't find touch from multiple penalties there's shame in not manning up to an occasion.
