Roy Keane had to stick his oar into the great Paris debate this week and good luck to him -- as a former Irish captain he’s as entitled to his opinion as anyone, and more so than a lot of people.
Now before you fall off your chair with that opening sentence, let me tell you that I agree with a lot of what Roy had to say about the 1-1 draw in France on Wednesday of last week that will never be forgotten, and for so many reasons.
There I was on Saturday night, in situ for the Star’s annual GAA awards banquet, when the need arose to spend a penny.
The venue was the Brazen Head, the quaint and very old boozer on the side of the Liffey and in close proximity to St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
The occasion was the launch of a charity CD for the Christmas market featuring the singing talents of the former Irish soccer manager Eoin Hand.
