Wales v N. Ireland

In the Euro 2016 Championships, Wales played Northern Ireland.  The four of us joined our friends, Ann and Barry, at the Rhydepennau pub to watch the game.  In the wake of the historic victory by Wales over Russia, local football fans were more confident than ever.  In the end, Wales beat Northern Ireland as expected.  But Wales never scored.  An own goal was scored by one of Wales' opponents.

After Wales won 1-0, the pub erupted.  This pic shows the locals after the excitement of winning had begun to die down.
