Waterford FC have just won their first League of Ireland title and the place has gone Soccer-mad. Fianna Fáil are ten years in government and de Valera seems to be President for life. And with ongoing ‘talks’ on the North, it seems like only a matter of time before the country is ‘all joined up again’ James Ryan is a leaving cert student with his future unclear.He is also a schoolboy Soccer star who would prefer to play for Manchester Utd. He has more than the Proclamation on his mind.Meanwhile, as the GPO beckons, England kick-off against West Germany at Wembley in the World Cup final!
