Donnacha O'Callaghan hit the high notes beautifully

Christy Moore playing for and being accompanied by the Ireland rugby team (not enough is made of how weird it is that all through the troubles, Ireland had a rugby team, and people somehow didn't find that mental) is a gig I'd like to have been at.

Donccha O'Callaghan has the most Irish name on earth (what is it about rugby that produces such pure national-stereotype names - 6 of the Welsh are called Jones, and the French have a splendid collection from Harinordoquy to Tillous-Borde to Trinh-Duc to Jauzion).

Ronan O'Gara also sang.
