Green heroes

•What a fantastic win for Ireland against the second best team in the world, Australia.

Who knows what we can achieve from here but we can rest assured that Ireland will always give their very best.

Some of these celebrity pundits on the airways annoy the hell out of me.

Ireland is a small country competing at the highest level -- the world cup!

Last week, some of these so-called experts with their inflated egos were writing off Ireland from the comfort of their studio armchairs, they seem to forget that the team are the stars, not them.

Why can't they get behind their country and fully support their national teams, 100pc? A message to the Irish players and the management team from the people of Ireland -- we support you all the way, win, lose or draw. Is feidir linn.
