It was an Irish man who captained them to their only world cup win. Not sure how I feel about that.

Why were New Zealand not declared winners by 2 wickets after 50 overs. That is the way I saw the result?

A great win for Laois today making me look like an idiot in the process.

After looking at the top eight teams left in the hurling championship on the rte website it occurs to me that Westmeath and Laois are still in it while Galway and Clare 2 much better teams are finished. Clare and Galway got squeezed out on scoring difference must now watch the 2 lesser teams waste opportunities to make progress that should belong to Clare and Galway imho.

Disagree.

Clare and Galway had four games each to secure a berth and failed to take them.

Laois and Westmeath earned the right to those preliminary rounds by virtue of their performances in the Joe McDonagh.

How else are these teams meant to develop or are you wanting to pull the drawbridge up even more for the top teams and deny the rest of the hurling counties a go at the top level?

Are the best teams left in the football or are some still there only due to a favourable draw?

Are Clare footballers better than Monaghan?

I just want a normal system where the weaker teams are eliminated first and the better teams are in it as long as possible. That is not too much to ask.

The penalty decision was correct. The defender might not have meant it but there was contact so it is a definite penalty. The penalty itself was one of the worst  I have seen in such a crucial situation.

Limerick were well deserving of their victory but I wonder how the game would have finished had Callanan finished off that goal opportunity. I think Callanan may have been slightly hooked before getting the shot away. Still would have been a Limerick win I think but maybe a lot closer.

The Wexford v Kilkenny game was a cracker with nothing between the sides for most of it. I thought Kilkenny started going for goal a bit too early at the end. You can get three scores very quickly and easily in a game of hurling.

3 years in jail for the person(s) who put up an image of an innocent  young boy as guilty of murder on Facebook. Really disgusting on top of disgusting stuff.

No. That type of protection is only for the perpetrators of serious crimes.

This is not easy reading.

So how did Boy B get found guilty of murder as it just seems he was present at the murder? Or am I missing something
Obviously the Jury decided based on the evidence.
He did bring her to the house, and he provided tape to tie her up or whatever.
So they felt he knew she was going to get assaulted/raped/killed.
I expect he'll be appealing.

Yeah I know that itís just the actual act of murdering her I suppose, it seemed all Boy A

If you read the article it shows that boy A told boy B a month before the killing that he wanted to kill Ana. That is a major part of the reason why boy B was convicted.

For me I find it difficult to beleive that boy B would be stupid enough to call for Ana and bring her through the park in front of witnesses and cctv if he really thought Ana was going to be killed.

Is O Hanlon gone for the leinster final for the two yellow cards/red card? Is that an automatic one game ban?

Limerick didn't start with their best team, they left some of their most important players on the bench. Tip I think played their best team. Tip won but look to have lost 2 of their players Bonner Maher and Cathal Barrett for the Munster final against Limerick.

Clare may feel a bit let down by what Limerick did but really have only themselves to blame for their poor performances against tip and Limerick.

I considered opening up a new topic for this post but with this topic at the top of the page I decided there was no need.

Messi, Ronaldo and and Neymar are the three highest paid footballers in the world. 2 of the 3 Ronaldo and Neymar have rape acusations pending against them??? That is all. Discuss

Kellen Winslow ll has been found guilty of the rape of a 58 year old homeless woman amongst other charges. The former Buccaneers tight end, number 6 pick in the draft and son of hall of fame tight end Kellen Winslow faces 15 years to life in jail on the rape charge.

That was a desperate performance from Ireland. How we can afford to have Doherty our best player on the bench I don't know.

Clare have collapsed this year for some reason. It might be time for a new management team.

I can't find anything confirming Sturridge to Rangers. Celtic could also be interested.
