Pic: The Irish lad injured in the Pamplona bull run puts a brave face on it in hospital
As Robbie Thackaberry says himself, Bulls 1 Robbie 0.
As we said last week, the annual bull running festival in Pamplona is a dangerous business. For many it is a bit of harmless fun but if you get caught in the wrong place, at the wrong time, then something bad can happen.
Dub Robbie Thackaberry was that unlucky sod on Saturday. Doing the bull run as part of a mate’s stag, Robbie was caught in a pile-up near the entrance to the bull ring and it was reported on Saturday that he suffered ‘serious’ injuries in the crush.
Luckily, and somewhat miraculously, the engineer suffered no broken bones or internal damage and according to today’s Irish Independent he should get the all clear from the doctors today and fly home with the rest of the gang who travelled to Spain.
At least he is able to smile about it, as this picture on his Facebook page shows.
