England were playing the Republic of Ireland at Wembley Stadium.
It was a big football game, especially for the Clancy brothers, who desperately wanted to see Ireland play, but hadn’t been able to buy any tickets in advance.
The two brothers took the train to Wembley and went up to the ticket office, where Michael asked, “How much are the tickets?”
“Twenty pounds”, said the ticket seller.
“Well, I’ve only got one eye and so I’m only paying ten pounds!”, Michael replied.
Wonder of wonders, the man at the ticket office gave him a ticket for £10 and let him in.
“And I’m only paying ten pounds”, said his brother Owen.
“Hang on”, said the ticket seller, “you’ve got two eyes!”
“Yes”, said Owen, “but I’ve only come to see Ireland play”.
