There’s an impressive photo of Her Majesty at Windsor Park, but an even bigger one at Croke Park

When I was growing up we didn’t have pictures of The Queen on display. We did have a snazzy golden frame around The Sacred Heart and a small green marble bust of Pope Paul VI. I had brought it home from a school trip to Rome. My mother was so impressed when she heard I had gone beyond the Vatican to receive tea in the Pope’s private garden.

Our headmaster knew someone who had a key. It was my first experience of a backstage pass and it delighted Mum who spent a lot of her time reading about the Pope.
