If you're on this site, you will probably know who we are, so little description is required! But if you are just browsing and say to yourself “those guys sound familiar!". You’re right it's Rob, Dilys (and now also Ethan and Alanna) Jones from Dublin Ireland. Send us a mail if you want more info.

Just wasn’t meant to be


I wish the picture to the left was at the full time whistle, but it was a photo of the flannery try. So near but yet so far is a good way to sum up last Saturday's game. At first it looked like a rout after the All Blacks scored early on. But all credit to the Munster boys they really got the team going and changed the tide. O' Connell was immense. At one point he tackled Ritchie Macaw so hard I thought he had killed him ! It was a good game to watch, both myself and Dilys went together and there was much shouting. The Irish crowd were great and we were right in the thick of the green army. As some of you will know we were meant to be going to a lunch with the players, but the IRFU neglected to tell us that it would cost us $350 ! So we decided against it. The ski pass in Queenstown took precedence ! Sorry Burkey. All is well with us here and we are really enjoying our time in St. Pauls. Rob has preached twice now and after he had finished the congregation clapped. This is a bit strange as you don’t get this at home, but it's nice to get some feed back.....! Dilys leaves for Dunedin early next week which will leave me in Auckland for a week on my own to spend much time going to the pub and watching the world cup conclusion. Opps I mean prayer, fasting and generally being holy ! Still no sign of my results , probably still trying to read my answers !
