In case you hadn't heard, today is national Class A drug day in Ireland and the majority of the world thinks it's hilarious (we're not saying they're wrong). Ecstasy, ketamine, crystal meth and magic mushrooms can all be bought and possessed after the Court of Appeal somewhat accidentally made it so yesterday.
That's bad enough (or good enough depending on your outlook) but now League of Ireland fans have to deal with Italian journalists taking the mick, not only out of our lawmakers but also our beloved #GreatestLeagueInTheWorld.
Tancredi Palmeri is well known to anyone who enjoys football and the internet in that he is one of the most ubiquitous football journalists on Twitter. In other words, he tweets incessantly about football and gets an awful lot of attention because of it.
And now he's tweeted this to his 106K followers.
Ecstasy, ketamine and magic mushrooms to be legal for one night tonight in Ireland. Finally Irish League will look attractive

Light-hearted and probably fair but perhaps too close to home depending on your affinity for the League of Ireland. And technically, the Irish League is the one with Linfield and Glentoran and they still have to deal with conservative laws which don't allow you to possess hard drugs.
