Eur real stars with sweet win; COMMENT Park House, 191 - 197 North Circular Road, Dublin 7 Tel: 01 868 8600, Fax 01 868 8626, irishmirror.ie.

THAT we are a sports-mad nation was proven yet again with the massive turnout for the victorious Connacht team on their return to Galway yesterday.

The Western province has so long been the Cinderella of our rugby regions, but on Saturday they took a fancied Leinster side apart with some stunning play.

For captain John Muldoon and his band of brothers - and brilliant coach Pat Lam - it was joy unconfined as they rounded off a fairytale season with a happy ending.

Perhaps it's a good omen for our other boys in green as they make final preparations for Euro 2016 in France.
