IT’S BEEN A busy week of sport. Here’s a taster of how you reacted.

Iran’s football supporters faced a tricky balancing act last Tuesday as theyfaced South Korea in the midst of a religious holiday, which bans Shiite Muslims from expressing joy. But Phil O’Meara put the plight of the Iranians into perspective – just think of those poor Mayo fans…

That’s nothing. Mayo fans have been forbidden from celebrating in September for 65 years…

Rown Hill still hasn’t forgotten 2013 and he sent out a word of warning to the All-Blacks as they renew acquintances with Ireland next month.

Still remember the day ,never felt so bad for a team ,they deserved to win that day ,all blacks we are coming for ye !!!!!!!

Connacht winger Niyi Adeolokun earned a call-up to Joe Schmidt’s squad but his phone let him down when the Ireland boss called him. Alan Noonan wasn’t a bit impressed, and clearly has history with the Galaxy Note 7.

So the phone coverage in Connacht is shocking then! Or had he a Galaxy Note 7 that had just exploded when Joe tried to call him!!!! 

Dundalk’s Daryl Horgan was named the SSE Airtricity/SWAI Player of the Month for September this week. Conex spotted his resemblence with Damien Duff and James McClean and, to be fair, he’s spot on!

Put Damien duff and James mc clean in a blender …………..out comes daryl Horgan !!!!

There will be some BBQ tonight.
