GUEST,Mikey joe BS: Munsterr Rugby ~ Thank you (8) BS: Munsterr Rugby ~ Thank you 20 Jan 03


Thank you to all the great men that lifted a whole province last saturday against the odds and showed what power and strnegth there is in self belief. I'm reminded of the words of Tommy Sands

" I stood with my son Fionan watching with admiration and wonder as the county team trained for the All Ireland. Faster and faster they ran, panting, sweating, shouting encouragement to each other, up the side of the Mournes. I couldn't help but admire the great force that motivated them and drove them upwards towards the Mount Olympus called Cloch Mor. In a sense, they seemed to be suffering for the very hills and valleys they would represent with such pride in Croke Park. Later when they would return in triumph to their home village and county with the Sam Maguire Cup, those same hills would cheer without ceasing. Dedicated to all the great sportsmen and women who reach for the sky and bring the rest of us with them. (From 'The Heart's A Wonder' 1995)
