The Fear of God
This blog is a collaborative work, written by a group of amateur writers, all of whom are passionate followers of Irish rugby. It is in no way connected to, nor endorsed by, nor seeks the endorsement of the Irish rugby squad and management, or the official governing body of Irish rugby, the IRFU.
Neither is it in anyway involved with the organisers of the Rugby World Cup 2007, nor with any of its agents or sponsors.
The articles published here are the sole intellectual property and responsibility of their respective authors, and may not be reproduced without the express permission of the individual authors. Any online resource who quotes from material originally posted here is requested to provide a link back to the original post.
Any lazy journalist who thinks they can get away with copying and pasting content from here and passing it off as their own original work will be subject to ridicule throughout the Irish blogging community and beyond.
The name “The Fear of God” is in honour of Paul O’Connell’s famous words of encouragement to his team-mates, prior to the Ireland-England match at Croke Park on 24 February 2007, as captured in the RTE documentary “Reaching For Glory.”
