Irish eyes smiling

It is not too often that Ireland can claim considerable bragging rights in international sport, but the recent victories of the Irish rugby and cricket teams have created pride in our island. Ireland's rugby team ruined England's dream of a Grand Slam yesterday and not long ago the Irish cricket team beat England in the World Cup. All of which underlines the glorious uncertainty of these games, and the commendable ability of the English to take a hiding - all in good sport.
