The decision to venture into Temple Bar on a Saturday afternoon after an Ireland match was surely a moment of complete madness. Especially with a young disabled adult in tow. But there you go.
There was drink, a lot of drink. And a lot of excitement too. Smiley fed off the atmosphere and radiated it back to the happy revellers. The young people in Meeting House Square weren't staring at my daughter, they were smiling with her. Perhaps it was the beer goggles or perhaps the new generation really are going to be a lot more inclusive. Let's hope so. Because we had a great afternoon pottering around and I'm sure we will be back again soon.

|Watching this kept us amused for ages, and I really wanted to give it a try, not for the money, just for the craic.|
|I think this guy was showing off (but he didn't win)|
|A reluctant Hen also has a go..|
|Loving it all :)|
