Cuireann an t-am seo den bhliain Italia ’90 i gcuimhne dhom i gcónaí mar gurb é sin an chéad uair a thosaigh mé ag breathnú ar sacar ar an teilí, cé go mbínn á imirt ó mhaidin go faoithin chuile lá le mo chuid cairde agus mé i mo bhuachaill óg in Inis Oírr fadó.

Agus san oíche amárach, Dé hAoine an 16ú lá de Mheitheamh, beidh foireann na hÉireann ar ais sa Mheánmhuir agus iad ag iarraidh an ceann is fearr a fháil ar an nGréig sa gcluiche cáilithe do Euro 2024. Beidh cleachtadh mhaith acu ar an teas ar aon chaoi tar éis an aimsir the a bhí againn le mí anuas. Go n-éirí libh a bhuachaillí!
