VT member dmrtn isn't too happy with me for only seeing cricket being played in Dublin. He seems to view Dubliners as a much tougher bunch and likes to tell me about the more manly sports such as rugby and hurling. But, in the spirit of authenticity, I can only tell you what I saw!!!
I was walking around the campus of Trinity College and noticed that the sky was clear for the moment. I decided to soak this up a bit and sat on a bench for a half hour watching these guys play. Have you ever watched paint dry? You get the picture. At least the sun was out.
