The RTÉ News USA 94 Report After Ireland Beat Italy Is Nostalgic Gold

This has been lying in the depths of YouTube waiting for us to bask in its warm arms and victorious smile. Sit down, forget about the worries of today and enjoy these five minutes and 35 seconds of pure nostalgia.

Tens of Irish fans are interviewed, all delirious with joy and many looking slightly worse for wear. It also features Paul Reynolds in New York revealing how police were called to 2nd Avenue during the festivities to bring about order, as if it were some sort of achievement.  After all the sing-songs and whatnot, they then move onto the actual sports news where the late, great Colm Murray gives us exactly what we want: Houghton's goal again.

Watch it, enjoy it and appreciate Terry Phelan, director of that fabled goal celebration. Can you remember where you were on the day it happened?
