Sinead Farrell was at Donnybrook for today’s Leinster Schools Senior Cup game between Clongowes and St Fintan’s.

On The Record

I’m not going to let him disrespect my legacy like that. I’m not the one who threw somebody through a window. I never spit on a kid. I never had unpaid debt in Las Vegas. I never said, ‘I’m not a role model’.

LeBron James hits back at Charles Barkley, and he sure didn’t hold back.

Showbiz, Baby!

It looks like in-demand striker Moussa Dembele is staying at Parkhead for the time being, and he wanted to let Celtic’s fans know how much he loves the club, ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ style.
