Sunday was a lovely day after the rain on Friday and Saturday. We went for a walk, watched the match and then the Taoiseach Brian Cowen came on television to say he was staying on.
It then proceeded to pour rain. Sums it all up really.
It teed off with the Seanie golfgate saga. This was the curtain call for the FF pantomime presentation: Is Cowen Goin'. Then the Labour funnies chipped in, demanding a vote of no confidence.
But there was worse to come as your paper announced that Jedward were to be unveiled as the Irish Eurovision entries, and that they were favourites to win.
It's enough to make my hair stand on end.

I, like most people at the time, presumed it was done with the unspoken intention not to be enforced, after all, this is Ireland.
If we are not going to chase down the people who ruined the country, we're not going to push about anybody who is 'politically insensitive'.
If we were, some columnists would be first to go.
