Kevin Myers: Aviva limited in wisdom, size, vision and suitability

I'd sworn that I would never enter the Aviva stadium, but on Sunday I was induced to by a friend who had a spare ticket, and the promise of lunch in The Lobster Pot beforehand.

It was an interesting journey through time. The lunch was quite superb, a reminder of the Old Ireland that caused people once upon a time absolutely to love a trip here. But the stadium is a perfect three-dimensional model of the DNA of hubris that not only killed the Celtic Tiger, but infected her cubs with the congenital syphilis of monumental debt.
