How do I get tickets for games in soutern ireland? No distributors in the UK will have them I guess.
You don't. The block booking scheme has a ten year waiting list, the Eircom League allocation is small and the rest of the tickets are split between corporate seats and scalpers.

I'm going to be daring and suggest we win 2-1. We're very strong at home and tend to treat friendlies a bit less casually than Italy.

Ireland will win, with us we always seems to think that we just need to turn up against other teams and we win, it is a main reason we always to badly against smaller teams. And also I have huge respect for Ireland, they always do brilliantly against big teams, I remember watching the 1-1 with France, Ireland were unlucky not to beat them in there own backyard!
