A phrase that surely sums up the weekend; a weekend that saw Munster finally claim the European cup after so long trying. Hats off to Peter Stringer, who by all accounts played out of his skin as he always does for Ireland anyway. Congrats to the lads on a great victory – I’m sure that Limerick will not sleep for a month.
The other “oh Lord”, probably moreso “oh Lordi”, goes to the Eurovision and possibly the best entry and contest in years. The Finland entry, Lordi, may have looked like a death metal group but they added a much needed je ne sais quoi to the contest. I thouroughly enjoyed this years event coupled with the comedic narration of Terry Wogan. The contest may never be the same but at least it’s sparking interest again.
