IT WAS A great week for Tipperary hurling, with both the minor and senior teams winning their respective All-Ireland championships last Sunday.

The seniors overcame the Kilkenny team that has been so dominant over the last few years, which meant everybody was looking for a reason to celebrate the new champions’ reign, just like Joey_Westland:

“I’m from Carlow but my second cousin is going out with a girl from Tipp so tonight I’m going to celebrate like a Tipperary man.”

Brian Cody and Michael Ryan were both gracious after the match. Something that didn’t go unnoticed by Marcus Ó Callanáin:

“Great to see Cody so humble in defeat, and Ryan so humble in victory.”

Warren Gatland was once again announced as the head coach for next Summer’s Lions test series, although his habit of picking Welsh players hasn’t made him a popular choice with everybody. Marc Metcalfe wishes them all the best though:

“Best of luck Wales.”

We had a chat with Dundalk’s goalscoring hero Robbie Benson, who seems to be bursting with talent. But his overwhelming talent is getting Ted Logan a bit down about his own achievements:

“Makes my 480 points and a winning goal in the junior B championship look insignificant.”

Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner has bagged a job with Nottingham Forest, a move which makes perfect sense according to Mick Power:

“Well he is a poor player who has been robbing a rich salary so he’s in the right place.”

And Eamon Fitzmaurice was given a new term as manager of the Kerry seniors, after narrowly missing out on a spot in the All-Ireland final this year. The decision wasn’t the most popular with everybody, though, and Coco Beware reckons that the job should go to another manager who is out of work at the moment:

“Louis Van Gaal should get the job.”
