Thousands of Newry women are planning on painting walls in their houses and watching the paint dry as the Euro Championship starts tonight.
We spoke with one housewife who told Newry Spud:
“My husband will sit down to watch the opening ceremony but by 7pm, I will be cracking open the Dulux and getting my brushes out. While he watches grown men run around a field after a blown up piece of sheep guts I really look forward to paining the walls and watching the paint dry.”
We spoke with one Newry husband who told us:
“This is my time for the TV, fuck Eastenders and Coronation Street, apart from 36 weeks of the year I don’t get to see football on the telly so she may just put up with it or go up the stairs to watch the TV in the bedroom.”
