    Default An Irish Blessing

    May you always have work for your hands to do.
    May your pockets hold always a coin or two.

    May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
    May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.

    May the hand of a friend always be near you.
    And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
    It is better to wear out than to rust out.
    - Richard Chamberlain, Tour of the Hebrides

    Us husbands are a sorry lot.

    Where's the mention of rugby?

    A married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!

    Here:

    Ewan MacKenna, has doubled down on his anti-haka stance, this time calling out New Zealand for its supposed "neediness and insecurity".

    The response to the traditional pre-match ritual divided fans and pundits, with some labelling it "disrespectful" and others calling it an appropriate response to the challenge.
    MacKenna, who took to Twitter to slam Ireland's performance, later turned his attention to Kiwis and the New Zealand media for its coverage of the haka reaction.

    "On a side note, is it geographic isolation or what, that for all their talent, the neediness and insecurity ooze in record levels from New Zealand," MacKenna wrote. "They could rob your house and still expect a blow job on the way out the door."

    "Irish rugby fans literally standing and celebrating," he wrote on Twitter after the Irish defeat. "I'm genuine in saying this. Complete and utter losers."

    "Love how narrative has become that we (Irish) are bunch of good natured people having craic," he said in another tweet. "I and I know other Irish journalists have never in sport come across more abusive, hateful mob who attack anyone who disagrees in most horrid fashion. Now we move to banter? Doesn't work that way."

    He also criticised Ireland's performance: "Fun and games aside, and obvious gulf in quality aside, I'm genuinely not sure I've ever seen an Irish team in a big game in international sport display less pride and heart. Not being good enough is forgivable, that isn't. Don't want to be there."

    MacKenna asked why the World Cup is still "pandering to the dance".

    "Christ, I've enraged the idiocy of New Zealand," MacKenna wrote on Twitter. ""Heritage". "Pride". "Warriors". "History". "Culture". Eh no, it's marketing and exploitation. Because if any of above nonsense wasn't via modern marketing campaign, this Haka wouldn't exist so recently."

    "That's unfortunate as New Zealand are justifiably big-headed enough without a massaging of their already massive egos."

    Mr MacKenna sounds like a loser to me, perhaps he should engage in some research on Irish Celtic battle cries, too inspire his own team.
    A lot more constructive than badmouthing a superior team.
