On February 24, 2007, more than 83,000 rugby fans went silent while God Save the Queen boomed and echoed its way throughout Croke Park, a monument to Irish nationalist culture and ambition. When the anthem ended, the crowd clapped politely. No one booed. No one jeered. It was a watershed, an almost iconic moment for both Irish sport and Irish history.
