Munster fury

Does the press ever tire of this story? There is nothing even vaguely newsworthy in the fact that Ryanair has raised its prices for flights on the weekend of the Heineken Cup Final in Cardiff. Well, duh? Demand suddenly shoots up and, lo and behold, prices do too.

Yet, every year (it seems), Munster's fans, who should know better by now, moan about the price of Ryanair flights to wherever their next big match is. We hear about it on the radio and read about it in the press.

Sometimes I wonder why the news doesn't more often inform us that water's wet.
