Ireland should consider a joint bid. If they use places like Killarney and Kilkenny as host locations they will be laughed at, again.

Joint bids are no longer being encouraged as is the old skool trick of say Wales playing games in Cardiff in an English WC etc.

Would be good in general to see who voted for who. Apparently the other African Unions voted for France over SA

Wales and Scotland both voted for SA. England, USA and Canada backed Ireland - not sure who else did as that it is not 8 votes.

USA and Canada have 4 votes (one each and 2 joint)
