View Full Version : Just heading into town for the Wales Vs Ireland game

The atmosphere here in Cardiff the last couple of days since St Patrick's Day has been fantastic and the centre of town has been transformed into a giant street party!

We'll be seeing the game on a giant screen outside city hall - should be fun!

May the best team win, though obviously I'm hoping it will be Wales!:beer:

I'm guessing it'll be a noisy time in the city tonight :)

About time the Welsh strung a bit of rugby together.

Well done Wales :beer:

I'm gutted overall about today's results, but can't deny Wales deserved the Grand Slam :beer:

Ow my head hurts!:D

They reckon there was about 25,000 people watching on the big screen outside city hall where I was...

The pic shows a pic of the big screen showing the museum where I would have been standing behind the middle flag.

The whole city was one huge party from well before the game till the early hours - fucking awesome!:beer:

Er, here's the pic - I'm not exactly in a fit state at the moment...;)

Have you sobered up yet? And how much beer if left in Cardiff?

20-03-2005, 21:02:35
I'm sober now - just feeling very delicate!

Apparently loads of pubs got drunk dry last night and the one I was in today (hair of the dog!) was missing about half the beers on tap!:D

You should have seen the place, people with shopping trollies full of beer walking down the street - the entirety of the park outside city hall was under about 6 inches of rubbish today!

The whole experience here from start to finish was awesome - easily better than a New Year's celebrations! It helped that the weather was maybe 20 celsius yesterday...

Its bound to be better than new year. That comes every 12 months. You have to wait 27 years for a Grand Slam!

20-03-2005, 22:22:57
Hopefully won't have to wait till the next one...

Who knows, maybe we'll win the next Rugby World Cup. Ahem.:cute:

There's optimism, and then there's sheer bloody minded optimism.

And then there's just gross stupidity. :p

still more chance than the scots!!!

21-03-2005, 09:41:52
True, true :)
But we never expect to win, I'm always hopeful, but know in reality it's not going to happen
