We’re Off To The Big Match

We are off to the rugby today to watch Ulster play Connacht in the Pro 14 Quarter Final at the Kingspan Stadium, Belfast. Adam is working in one of the hospitality lounges but Fionnuala and the girls surprised me last week with tickets to the biggest match of the season. It’s a sellout crowd and the place will be rocking. I’m super excited. It’s almost as if it’s a second birthday, one week after the actual event.

I will post an update later, including photos of our adventures at the match. Hopefully, the girls will get to meet some of the players after the match. That’s it for now as first we are off to a birthday party for Fionnuala’s little nephew, where I will no doubt eat my own body weight in cake and sausage rolls. Good job I went for a seven mile run earlier this morning.

Stay tuned!

What was the last sporting event you attended?

How much cake can you eat at one sitting?

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 17 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. When I was a high school athlete, a friend made me an 8-inch, two-layer, chocolate cake. I ate half of it in one sitting. Whew, if I tried to do that now, I’d probably pass out!

    We have a semi-pro baseball stadium in our area, so the last sporting event I went to was to cheer on our home team, the Hillcats.

    I hope you enjoyed the Ulster-Connacht match!


  2. We attended a local football (⚽️) match in Cambridge England about four or five years ago. I have no recollection of who played or who won. The stadium was pretty empty.


  3. I was up very early a couple years ago around 2 a.m. and I found a channel that was showing a European rugby match. I watched it for a long time and tried to figure out the rules. I started to get the hang of it and I enjoyed watching it. Those are some tough dudes and it’s fun to watch! God bless!
