Yesterday Ireland saw what the Irish rugby team is capable of when all parameters are right. It turned out to be an emotional day for many since Ireland has never beaten New Zealand. When the 80 minutes of the game were played, Ireland was ahead. But then came the last 90 seconds. Pure joy changed into pure heartache. Still… as a nation, we can be proud of our rugby team because we saw belief, passion, strength and rugby intelligence at work.
Below video shows what rugby means to people in Ireland.
