Every morning TheScore.ie brings you the stories you need to know before that first cup of coffee.

1. #GAA There was club action throughout the country yesterday afternoon; we went kick-by-kick.

2. #PREMIER LEAGUE There was two 1-1 draws in England’s top division yesterday. John O’Shea saw his deflected header earn a point against local rivals Newcastle in the earlier kick-off. The Magpies played the majority of the game a man down after Cheick Tiote was dismissed. Afterwards Black Cats boss Martin O’Neill was furious with his own supporters’ behaviour.

Elsewhere, Everton earned a draw at Loftus Road against struggling QPR.

3. #RUGBY Ireland manager Declan Kidney will name his squad for the upcoming November internationals at a press conference in Dublin this Wednesday.

And the Corkman has plenty to ponder after another eventful weekend of European rugby. Munster got their Heineken Cup campaign up and running yesterday with a bonus-point win over Edinburgh at Thomond Park yesterday afternoon. We caught up with head coach Rob Penney afterwards in Limerick. Here’s the rest of the detail from yesterday’s games.

4.#TRIATHLON Mayo’s Con Doherty yesterday claimed a bronze medal at the International Triathlon Union (ITU) Junior World Championships in Auckland, New Zealand. The result is another breakthrough for the Westport teenager, the current National Junior Champion.

5. #RACING Frankie Dettori’s 18-year association with Godolphin is to come to an end, after the stable announced that the Italian will not be one of its retained riders next year.
