Title: Even Better than Ice Cream.
Saint Patrick’s Athletic 2 Sligo Rovers 0.
We won the league.
At long last.
This feels so good.
Even better than eating ice cream in
the Phoenix Park in summer.
I thought my head exploded
when we scored the second goal.
But it didn’t.
My throat is hoarse.
My bones are dog-tired.
I’ll be swimming in the trophy
this Friday at the Derry match.
Then I must rest.
