So today is the England Ireland game at Croke Park. You probably know this already, but from what I've been able to gather this is symbolically very important because it'll be the first time "the English" play rugby in the home of Gaelic football since they indiscriminately opened fire on a crowd of civilians in the stadium on Bloody Sunday in 1920, killing 14. Starting in an hour. The other stadium's being refurbished.
