Pre Season tour to Ireland 1994 (plus Woking)
We arrive into Dublin. Last time Pete and I had been in Keatings was before Ireland v England in 1990. As we walked in the bar it all kicked off as a group of England lads stood on the seats singing the national anthem and the locals didnt like it! Pete and I ended up behind the bar until it all calmed down and then we resuumed drinking!! This time is was much much more peaceful!!
We go on a tour of Dublin, but keep finding great bars to stop in.
And of course have to do the tour of the Guinness Brewery - well it would be rude not to!
Some pictures of the first game v UCD (26.7.1994 0-3)
We go to the dogs (with Lansdowne Road in the background)
Second game v Shelborne (28.7.1994 1-2)
In the bar at Tolka Park after the game. Yes its me with Steve Foster and Garry Howlett
We visit Croke Park - which is in the middle of a major redevelopment
We spent quite a bit of time in the pubs near the grounds!!
