I've never been the easiest to live with. Ask Ann. We're sitting at home watching TV on Friday evening (Course you are, what the fuck else would you be doing?) when I combust during the ads and the latest promotion for RTE Sport.

"We're in this from the beginning," a sweetie says. "We're in this for the blood, the sweat, and even the odd tear along the way. We're in this for the love-ins that unite us, and the fall outs that tear us apart. We're in this for those moments the whole world was watching . . . even when the ref isn't.

"We're in this for those days you wouldn't believe, and the nights that made us believe. And we're in this for when we all can gather again. We'll be ready . . . because we're in this together."
