    Our broadcasters translated it as "Irlanda del Sur" o "La República de Irlanda", but the word "Eire". in Spain, Italy and Southamérica, "EIRE" makes a reference to ireland free State a catholic country, and Irlanda del Norte is the irish segment of land under the empire guidance.

    And for some ignorants when you say Celtic F.C they think the club is located in Ireland

    Some spanish speaking ignorants think Celtic F.Cis in an irish club in Ireland. There is a colorful anecdote from Messi the first time he played against Celtic he thought he was travelling to Ireland, and was shocked when he realized he was going to Scotland.

    The ball is round and has many surprises.

    Impressive!!
    you made Pierre Bourdieu, Phillipe Meirieu and Michel Foucault sound like scholar alumni.

    back to football.

    vs England? or at aviva?

    Wouldn't it make sense to base the team in the UK for this set of matches?

    Maybe just do a week of 11 v 11 up at St George's a v b then the real thing happens in wembley
