She's from Swinford - her name is Paul and he's a garda.I think we need to set aside the arguments of the past, and look at this whole Western development thing in a new way.

Anyway, there is hope for Connacht. Tonight the lowest side in the Magners league was narrowly beaten by the potential champions of France, but they went down fighting to the end and might have won with a bit of luck. We need more of that spirit nationally to counter the cynics and doom-sayers.
Best of luck to Leinster & Munster this weekend. The country needs champions.
