Merrion Squares

I'm a recipient of the FAI's daily RSS feeds (until recently the only feeds to be had at Merrion Square were for the blazers in business class on flights to matches behind the Iron Curtain) so I suppose I was asking for this. But I was nonetheless amused by this dispatch from the Boyos in Green: groundbreaking meetings at El Paso II between the two-associations-formerly-at-handbags-with-one-another. Only the deluded, glazed minds of people involved in the vicariously pleasurable world of sport administration could find this worthy of news. Until 80 Merrion Square is stormed and its inhabitants exiled to the minority sport that is rugby, Irish football is doomed.
