I was very lucky to get tickets for the Rugby World Cup 2023 Ireland vs Scotland rugby match in Stade de France last Saturday. It was a great occasion for the Irish and we thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the build up to the match. It was a pity that the game was over as a contest before half-time - Scotland were as poor as Ireland were brilliant. The All-Blacks in the quarter-final will be a much different proposition, but Ireland definitely have the skill, ability, and power to win. Bring it on!

Weekend in Paris #RWC2023
That soccer shower at the rugby!
We also took the opportunity to see some of the iconic sights in Paris while we were there. Here are a few photos (some already published to Facebook) to mark the occasion:
With Roma at the Arc de Triomphe.
On the banks of the Seine.
Posing with Gustav Eiffel at his Tower.
In the crowded Metro tunnel on way to the match.
At the restoration of Notre Dame.
At my new restaurant in Place du Tertre, Montmartre.
