Historian Dr Éamon Phoenix, aged 69 following a short illness. I very much enjoyed his daily column in the Irish News.

Stewartstown will walk that Junior Ulster Championship. The game was over after 10 minutes yesterday.

Letterkenny Gaels will be hard to overcome.

Not going by what I saw today!

Full time Letterkenny 1-13 1-12 Derrynoose. Letterkenny aided by a strong breeze and an incompetent referee.

More and more its the dual clubs coming to the fore. The purists will hate it
Are Dunloy not the only dual club representing their county across all Ulster football competitions?

Derrynoose have teams at all 4 codes. They also won the ladies junior football title and lost the Intermediate Camogie final, their hurlers compete in the senior championship.

The Banshees of Inisherin is brilliant, very dark and funny.

Looking to buy a family car to fit two car seats and good space in the boot. Basically looking a reliable spacious car. Had been looking at a Vauxhall Grandland X. Anybody have one of these? It’s probably between that and a trusty VW Tiguan. VW hard to beat. Any advice greatly appreciated.

Nissan X-Trail worth thinking about. I have one and really like it.

From the Irish independent



Vinny Corey is to be appointed the new Monaghan football manager.


Monaghan will bring their exhaustive search for a replacement for Seamus McEnaney to an end later with Corey's approval.

It is expected that he will have his brother Martin at his side as a coach. Martin Corey has been with Mickey Graham in Cavan in recent years.

Other backroom appointments are expected by Corey who had a long and distinguished career as a Monaghan footballer, winning two Ulster titles in 2013 and 2015, before retiring in late 2019.

Corey is a Clontibret clubmate of Conor McManus and the expectation is now that the veteran forward will commit for another year.

Corey had been part of McEnaney's backroom team in 2021 and 2022, working as a coach and selector.

Willy Moen not getting the job then?

To make reunification a reality, O’Neill must win over those from a unionist background, or at least assuage them that she is no threat.
“I have to find ways in which to ensure that those of a British identity feel protected. Is it going to be smooth? No, of course not.”
