From the class and respect shown from the crowd during God save the Queen,the passion and emotion in amhran na bhfiann I mean to see John Hayes and Jerry Flannery visibily crying was extremely poignant. The will and desire to win displayed by the Irish was outstanding,the icing on the cake was Horgans gaelic style try AND we even saw Eddie O'Sullivan smile!Historic.. a great day to be Irish.
What is rugby?
That was one of the best games of rugby I've ever seen in my life! A proud day to be Irish & emotional to hear Ireland's Call echo around Croke Park, I'm not ashamed to say I had tears in my eyes. But for almost the whole 80 minutes or so, I couldn't keep the smile off my face, try after try. An event that the entire country watched together & the significance of which only a true Irish man or woman can understand.

Who captained Ulster to their European Cup success back in 1999?
I think that respect for the national anthem of any country is to be expected from the people of any country. However what they think of politicians and some of the people of the country should be for individual experience not national history.
What is the connection between 1966 World cup(soccer) and 2003 World cup (rugby)?
You had a great victory today so well done! Also it was the first time I'd seen Ireland play at home outside Lansdown Road. To be frank that Lansdown road stadium was pretty shabby and wasn't good for Ireland's national image. It should have been knocked down many years ago. Anyway congratulations again. England were defeated today in every aspect of the game.

From this half blood---I am glad you were able to experience such an emotional event today. It really must have been good!

Who is better player? Mat Rogers or Mat giteau?
I'm an Englishman although my ethnic origin is Indian as my parents were both from Goa. Congratulations Ireland on a memorable victory and for showing forgiveness and grace on what must have been an emotionally charged night. There was a lot written in the press about the political significance of the night. I have many friends with Irish backgrounds and so I have been lucky enough to visit Ireland many times. There is no song quite like the Fields of Athenry and there couldn't have been many dry eyes in Croke Park when that was being echoed around the ground.
It was a poignant and fitting way to honour the victims of what happened in 1920. Fingers crossed that the Irish can get the results they need to win the Five Nations (although I also hope England can recover and maybe sneek the results they need!).
Watch my link, Now do you understand why American football players where all the padding?
i'm not irish, but i wanted to say congratulations nonetheless, your boys fought very well and you deserved the victory. have to say i am not usually a massive rugby follower, but the six nations always conjours up a few surprises as well as excitement, alongside the rugby world cup which is taking place later on this year.
because of their success and the publicity over their win against the aussies during the final in australia in 2002, england have been to a large extent arrogant and thus, it is because of that success that it has allowed it to affect them in such a negative way, in terms of their performances- most of which were dire- that they have gone backwards, instead of forward as a unit. the fact that they are so over reliant on jonny wilkinson as the key man, this in itself illustrates the problems england have within the team, sadly. and rugby- like football- isn't a one-man sport and it shouldn't be. this goes to show the rugby world cup win was a one-off and will never be repeated again, well, not in france this year that is and probably not in new zealand either, methinks. i'd predict either south africa- the springboks-, or the all blacks from new zealand will win it. england on the other hand, haven't got a cat in hell's chance
Why was there a minutes silence at the beginning of the France Scotland match?
Today's game was just brilliant. We have grown up as a country and I felt so proud of all the Irish fans and the players who were at Croker today and the repect they showed to the English team and their national anthem. I still have a big smile on my face and will never forget this day, for the great rugby that was played and because of its place in history
