Patsy Opens Eire vs. Albania
A few introductory words for those not familiar with Irish sports: On Saturday, June 7, Ireland plays a European Championship qualifier against Albania at Lansdown Road. It is a match the boys in green have to win or the dream of the Championship is over.
There is entertainment before and Patsy was invited to open the ceremonies at 14:30 P.M.; he'll be singing The Rare Auld Times and The Ferryman. It is a great honor to be invited to warm up the crowd of 40.000 and, might we say, also Patsy's good friend Brian Kerr and his boys. Following and supporting Irish soccer since decades and counting many many of Ireland's past and present sports celebrities to his friends, there is no better man than Patsy Watchorn.
Unfortunately, the stadium is completely sold out, but there is worldwide live broadcast from Alaska to Australia from 14:30 on, so it - depending on TV stations schedules and programs - chances are you'll see Patsy on TV wherever you are on this world.

Patsy Watchorn is wishing Brian Kerr and the team all the best!
