VIDEO: The greatest Irish diary of the Rugby World Cup

Ireland’s World Cup dream is over, but by God we have the memories.

Irish rugby fans made the journey across the water in their tens of thousands - an army in green travelling in support of Joe Schmidt’s men.

We’ll be telling each other the stories for years, but when it comes to an actual record of events this one is hard to beat.

Take a bow James Kelly for this superb video diary of his and his friends’ trip to watch Ireland final, heart-breaking game against Argentina.

Laughter, craic and despair - it’s got the lot.

And it ends as all trips should, with a singsong.
