    An idea/please read

    A few here know me well enough to know if I start a thread it might be interesting..

    I am going to strip this down from what my family and I spoke of tonight.We as a family, had a really hard last few years here but we are determined to kick on and enjoy life for what it is(phoenix from the flames so to speak), but more importantly we believe it is all about friends like here/community to kick this on.

    I want to provide something in my house because of this as a shrine to Munster Rugby for everyone who is a munsterfan to see and enjoy.We as a household agreed tonight that the attic conversion finished after Christmas should incorporate a huge ammount of Munster memorobilia.

    Now,when i say "Memorabilia" (But it must be Munster!),I dont mean something you consider vital Munster stuff, keep it.! What Mr small Taz (my son) and I want is something like like a drawing or an extra and only extra away stuff like flags/tickets etc where you had 2 of something coming home from an away match or you would like to see it on a wall etc. from the matches involved over the years.I plan to photograph it all up on the ceiling and arches,all together.

    Mr small taz reckons everyone involved signs the particular item they provide and we photograph it in bits and also in the arches and then in the full shot out.

    It sounds silly but we both based it on a wall we saw in Allasio,Italy a few years back.Its a simple personal thing,but its a nice idea.Any extra ideas appreciated?PM if you want to send stuff

    EDIT: The young lad (now he is gone to bed) wants the small flags from the matches over the years,if possible.

    Got 2 tickets from the Munster v AB's game from the official opening of the 'new' TP some where in the house taz. I and 1 of my kids who were lucky enough to be there will sign it and send it on. Nice idea.

        I have a huge spread of newspaper cuttings going back 12 years and plenty of tickets. All are at your disposal. PM me with your details and I'll gladly send you on whatever you want.

        As an aside, and something that galls me, as a 16 year old enthusiastic amateur photographer back in 1978 I shot three rolls of B&W film while I was pretending to be a newspaper hack at the '78 Munster victory over the All Blacks (like every other hack I missed the try) but unfortunately I lost the negatives many moons ago. My good uncle, one Charlie Mulqueen (then, sports editor of the Limerick Leader) had four of my shots printed in the old Limerick Chronicle but alas when I went to their offices a few years ago I found that the microfishe for the Chronicle between '77 and '78 are missing.

              I have tonnes of programmes myself,but again if ppl had ideas on a way "Munster" should be laid out? This is personal. We are Munster because of that,no one will take that from us .
              What sort of stuff have you got Tippex ,all welsh matches?

                    Have a look back through the Munster books and various media Taz, my old man and me have popped up in the Calendar and various munster books on a number of occasions. We've framed a dew of them (we made a jacks in the house the munster altar)

                      I have programmes from the early 90s up to present day from the old interpro days of the old O'Neills/Carling jersies to the old club games (mainly Garryowen but loads Shannon/Munsters/Con too) including many Limerick derbies.

                      If you PM me your details I can get the old fella to send some onto you. Can feel your pain over the 1978 photos Niall. Went to world cup this year with my trusty 2002 jersey in manky, faded pink condition and munster flag. Some scumbag stole the jersey in the hostel in Rotorua after the Russia game. Now I'm in Sydney the flag is still intact hanging on my wall however!

                          I have one of them huge heineken Champagne bottle for the 2006 Heineken Cup final, How it was brought home on the plane I will never know. That has a special place in the house though. Also managed to bring back to limerick a huge cardbord cut out of Paul O Connell from another one of the finals. All was going well until people started tackling the cut out late on in the night

                            No liquid ban on planes until August 2006.
