They were spawny b*****ds in their qualifying groups for years.  Didn't they have teams like Switzerland and Denmark (or someone as equally as 2nd/3rd tier quality side) as top seeds in theirs for about 10 years?  Finishing 2nd then getting the lowest ranked team in any play off?

We were getting teams like France, Spain, Italy in the same time period.  I'm probably well off with the teams but you get where I'm going.  One lucky qualifying draw can elevate your seeding for the 3 or 4 it seemed for Ireland.

This. 

Plus Stephen Kenny is a Fife c*nt.

I’m on 12 points, never thought I’d get a look in for Ireland tickets, so never really paid attention to the sale.

Just realised I could have had one! Got tickets for the home end anyway, but the away points would have come in handy.

Back to the original question, is this game on TV?

No, it won't be.

Ok, thanks...you could have saved yourself the hassle of cutting and pasting a "hillarious" picture of Robert De Niro (twice) by saying that the first time round.

I recall seeing this about three weeks ago and was hopeful that a broadcaster had stepped in with an offer but obviously not.

Also had a look elsewhere and it seems you are correct that no broadcaster is commited to showing the game live - such a shame as in Aviemore for a golf weekend and I was trying to arrange somewhere that 16 of could watch the game after playing Spey Valley - I had wrongly assumed that it was going to be on Sky.

Dumb question maybe, but won't there be some form of Armenian and Irish live telly coverage?

 

ETA: see the nordic streaming thread for an update on this - looks like they will be on the telly after all 👍

Yes, RTE show all the Ireland games. You can stream this easy on the RTE player, just download a free VPN.

Don't - the RTÉ player is absolutely shite even without a VPN. You'd be better off finding a stream of RTÉ online which is fairly easily done

I like that they specified that it was North Stand Lower on the tickets as if there's an upper tier somewhere at that end.

It's the finest 3/4 of a stadium in Dublin (Croke Park excluded).
