Almost overnight, a whole host of decorations are up all over Dublin. Congress flags and bunting,but also the Irish green, white and orange tricolour. But not that all this is to celebrate Eucharistic Congress. Much of the bunting is support for Ireland’s opening EURO 2012 group match against Croatia today in Poland, with kick-off at 19h45 this evening. Whatever, it all adds to the gaiety of all the festivities. And the national colours are sure to draw comments from the many Spanish Italian and visitors to the Congress, Ireland’s next opponents in the group matches (Spain v Italy kick-off at 5.00pm today).
