I don't think to many will argue that the greatest moment in Irish sporting history has yet to come. A candidate could possible be when the NAMA bill is passed into law in about a months time. Very sporting of the twits in the abomination I think.
My three favourite moments are -
1 - When Ray Houghton put the ball in the England net during the European Championships in 1988. It was Ireland's first appearance in a major championship and what a way to start with a winner against the olde enemy.
2 - Ray Houghton also features in my second favourite moment, again a goal worthy of winning any match. This time it was during the World Cup in the US in 1994. The Giants Stadium, the victims, 3 time World Cup Winners Italy. Leon also survived a stomach pump that night.
3 - Ireland's Grand Slam winning team of 2009. Heroes , one and all and the last occasion i felt really proud of being Irish. Indeed most of those moments have been provided by sport. Sad really.
Thanks Ray for the memories. If Carlsberg did Sirs, you'd be one.
