I write from London to pay tribute to a wonderful Irish rugby team, a group of players that gave hope, not for the first time this year, to Ireland and showed us that everything is achievable if you





believe in what you are doing.



Ireland is not a thing, it is a people: a people born in the Emerald Isle, or born to people in other lands that hail from that land of beauty and culture.
