On Saturday night last 'Red was the Colour' in Billy Murphy's Bar in Boherbue where the Duhallow Reds, the Liverpool supporters branch which covers a wide area, gathered in big numbers to watch the Champions League final on the big screen.

They were there from all age groups - some pensioners even proud to wear the official kit.Others watched on in amazement, some saying what's the world coming to at all as they watched the group celebrate as if it was there last day at school. Yes, their childhood days came out in them once more and they enjoyed the celebrations. And I suppose after a long season where they were extremely unlucky not to claim a league title they were entitled to their magic moment.
