A volleyball named Wilson had Ireland sobbing its heart out last night

It was just too much.

LAST NIGHT’S BIG movie was Castaway, starring Tom Hanks as a FedEx employee stranded on a desert island after his plane goes down in the Pacific Ocean.

It’s a notoriously tough watch.

People settled down on their sofas expecting a Saturday night treat. By the end of the film, the whole of Ireland was collectively shrieking “WILSOOOOOONNN!” and sobbing uncontrollably.
