  1. Spent 3 weeks living with families in Invercargill NZ 20 years ago and experienced the national support of the All Blacks. Congratulations on your win!

    My son (former rugby player) was there. Said it was an amazing experience. Lots of people from Ireland flew in for the game. Instead of singing the national anthem for Ireland it was played on the violin and the crowd started singing along with it. First time Ireland has won against New Zealand in 111 years.

    It was another Cubs-like victory. The city was already crushed with people still reveling from their World Series victory and the parade the day before – seventh largest gathering of people in human history. Spirits were high and the thought was Ireland could do it, and they did.
