Pearse Park, Longford, June 4, 2006

There's not much room. A few more could have squeezed in at the scoreboard end, but the view mightn't have been great. Officially, there were 15,213 people in the ground; unofficially, there might have been one or two more.

Pearse Park looked fantastic. It had never looked better in fact. It had never been so full. For those who could remember the dank, grey 'stadium' of the 1970s and '80s, it was hard to believe this was even the same place. It was bright and colourful. Modern even. It helped that the sun was shining. And that the Dubs were in town.
