Heroes return …shoulder to shoulder

Triple Crown, Six Nations Championship and Grand Slam all in a day’s work.

After 61 years of Irish heartbreak this golden generation in green raised Irish spirits on the 25th of March, defeating Wales in Cardiff to be crowned champions.

I was amazed at the sheer speed and vastness of the information to be posted online, during and prior to the game. Constant updates were available throughout the game as well as post match interviews with many players including iconic team captain and man of the match, Brian O’ Driscoll, immediately after the game to accommodate those unfortunate souls who were unable to attend or watch the biggest rugby game of the year. Post match blogs conveyed Irish excitement and pride at the victory and revealed more information than any news-paper could offer.

Footage continued on Sunday, the 22nd March, when over 18,000 loyal supporters gathered outside the Mansion House, on Dawson Street to greet the country’s heroes. Pictures and video footage were immediately posted to the official irish website, where views soared.
