So I'm sick with a stomach bug, first felt the effects Thursday. Which means...no Oxegen  180 euro down the drain.

I'm consoling myself with the fact that my friends are soaked...

*cough cough* Testing, testing....
Yay, first post! (I really just wanna see how my avatar looks...)
Um, Dublin girl I am, although I really shouldn't count as one, seeing as I live so far north people from Kildare and Wicklow are closer to the city than me and the rest of Ireland has a more dependable transport system than north Dublin. Well, I like to claim they do anyway, when I've been standing at a freezing busstop for an hour and half...
I dislike rugby *ducks* but have been enthralled by the World Cup. Favourite team: Japan. Don't ask... Supporting Italy today, Serie A may be totally made of crooks, but the Italians still deserve to win the Cup.
I think that's enough of a test. Go raibh mile for your patience.

Joe, what did you do with your ticket?

One of my friends got a free ticket for the Sunday when someone else fell ill. I didn't go to Oxegen - I have cleanliness issues!! I have heard the horror stories and see the graphic pics of the 'facilities' there!!!

Did nothing with it Livvie, tried to give it friends who were all going to the Munster Final instead!

My friends had a good time, but say it was ruined by the Sunday night - they were in campsite A - check the oxegen.ie messageboards, there are LOADS of complaints about the security there and general scumbags ruining it for everyone - setting tents on fire, toppling a security tower and generally assaulting people!

Of course MCD have released the generic "Went without trouble blah blah blah" and considering how much money they give the national papers through advertising, don't expect any of the campsite horror stories to make the paper.

Well, scumbags ruin everything. They're all over where I live (South Dublin). Everywhere I look. In the street. In my school. At The Square (which is where they congregate). It's like a zombie film.
So, discussion. Subject: Scumbags/Scangers.

Scobes - they've made wikipedia I believe. I just don't get how some scumbags believe that their behaviour/attitude will get them anywhere. It's like they have zero foresight.Though in fairness, a mate of mine who was at Oxegen said that the majority of the trouble he saw was caused by lads he was talking to at the start of the weekend - and they were well off D4 types just after their leaving cert with more money than sense.

Such D4 types aren't great either, although I live fairly far away from the vast majority of them. However, I'm on the outskirts of Scangerland. A couple of years ago, a bunch of scangers mugged me and my friend - looking for fireworks, of all things. Since then, I've actually become phobic about going outside (it happened just a few metres away from my house). So I have little contempt to spare for posh D4 types.

Are you from Laois perhaps? I just get that feeling.
I'm Dublin born and bred, but I've plenty of Clare and Limerick relatives, so when Clare do well in the hurling, I celebrate!

The Oxegen riots finally made the papers - even if it was the rag that is the Mirror.

Congrats to the Erneside men, although their not having Mattie the Stamp was a huge help to you, but good win nonetheless.

As for us Laois men, bring on the Biffos!!!!!!!!!!

Brutal game actually - both teams played poorly and there was no atmosphere at the game at all. and it was £17 in!!!!! Glad Forde wasn't on - Wexford obviously didn't have a Plan B.
Could have done without drawing Donegal though - the last few games between these two have been poor fare.

Fancy Laois to beat Offaly - they didn't look too hot yesterday. Might be a long summer for youse yet!

Nah, we're doing alright, have restored some pride, but there's no way we're at the level Armagh or Dublin are at yet. If we got some nice draws we could stumble to an All Ireland semi, but I cant see us living with either of those two come the big day. I think its Dublins title to lose, but then I think they will somehow contrive to lose it come the moment. They've played no one outseide of Leinster yet, and people forget very quickly league games like when yourselves beat them in Parnell, etc. Let the hype engulf them, they'll implode in due course. It just won't be to Laois I'm afraid!

Hmmm - assuming Fermanagh get past Donegal , Cork's not the worst draw - they seem very reliant on Masters for scores.
Pity the Donegal game is on a Sunday - those Saturday night games lend themselves well to a few pints afterwards for post-match analysis!

Same here, have gotten accustomed to the Saturday night games following our wins over Tyrone and Meath, Sunday night down in the town, could make work in Dublin Monday morning most difficult.....

I was there Pete, actually have my ticket from the game as my bookmark at present, I firmly believe anything outside the pale Sounthward is Munster, can't stand that D4 shower, they even resent people from outside the pale following the Leinster team.

I couldn't make it to Cardiff either due to herself's exams, and the fact that we are in the middle of moving house, watched the semi v Leinster in between emptying a transit van!

Anywho, we watched the match in the local.
Like two eejits in a pub of what I would consider not too bothered people who decided to just wear red for the day.

"JESUS CHRIST ROG, JUST TAKE THE f**kING THREE POINTS!" was a mild outburst from me during the match.

Anyway, match ends, I'm bawling like a wee un, herself is bawling like a wee un, but everyone else in the bar is strangely numb. For example no one seems to want to clap them up for the medals, and I'm thinking "Fuck this I'm off to Shannon airport!"

So off we go camcorder in hand and we meet a couple of high vis jacket airport crew at Shannon.

We get to talking and we mention we've driven up from Cork, so he says as we've come all the way up from Cork he'll make our trip worth while, so with a nod and a wink he says 'Meet me by the entrance to the restaurant upstairs in a minute". So we go up and the next thing we know we are being ushered into the VIP Press area!

There's only about 6 other supporters in there and we get to meet THE WHOLE TEAM! Herself get's her jersey signed by most of the team, got her piccies taken with ROG, Payne and Trevor Halstead, gents all, I chatted with Frankie Sheehan and Barry Murphy about next season, both very optimistic about it. Paul O'Connell is a model pro, signed everybodies memoribilia and only left when the Munster officials dragged him out.

What a night.

It was really funny, two weeks ago Im going through UCC campus and there are a couple dozen people gathered outside the chapel - ROG's getting married. So I meet the girlfriend, cheer when they come out and leave - small crowd, nothing big.

The news that night - "HUNDREDS of rugby fans turn out in UCC to see Munster hero's wedding"

I was there   It was frankly fantastic.  I had no nails left at the end of the match and I split my lager over some poor bloke in front of me as I jumped up cheering.  I still have loads of photos on my camera phone.  I also inherited a Munster flag which has pride of place in my bedroom from another bloke who was sitting in front of me that I managed to not spill beer on

I'm organising a season ticket for the Cardiff Blues, not because I want to support them in particular, but because it will mean I'll get cheaper tickets for the Six Nations and will be able to see Munster play Cardiff for the Celtic League matches and the Heineken Cup draw.

God I love living in Cardiff
