Having lived in Ireland for the best part of 10 years, the area we lived in was the home of Munster Rugby. The City’s celebrations for the sport and their profound proudness for their team was regularly demonstrated across the city. Giant decorations of Munster Rugby shirts hung across the streets on occasions akin to how festive christmas decorations adorn city’s around the world.
The team’s stars were regularly seen in public going about their day to day business or supporting local events, then the next minute were being seen on screen’s internationally as they competed on the world stage.
Whenever Munster Rugby played there wasn’t a pub or house in town that wasn’t roaring with fierce support from every man, woman and child that belonged to the city, screaming at their TV’s for a win.
In turn, the stars of the team were just as loyal to their supporters and were never too busy or too famous to pose for a photo or sign a shirt or Rugby Ball.
Here is a picture of me with Team Captain Paul O’Connell:
There is something that inspires and warms you when you see such a passionate bond between people created for a love of sport and in particular a team. This is particularly demonstrated in A Pass Around the World…
