French Banned From Bringing Birds To Croker
Updated : Feb 8, 2009
French rugby fans were told to leave theirs cockerels at home as the France took on Ireland (and lost!!) at Croke Park.
Security at Croker was stepped up ahead of yesterdays game in order to prevent smuggled cockerels, brought into the country by Les Bleus supporters, from making it onto the pitch.
French rugger fans have a tradition of sneaking their team’s emblem into matches to let loose when the final whistle blows. Six birds were seized from fans when the teams met in Dublin two years ago.
VeryHappyPig hates birds especially cockerels, pigs are a much better emblem than stupid cockerels!
