Meanwhile, it was another pretty humiliating day for Roy Hodgson.

The Best Thing We Shared


Hours after arriving home with the rest of his Irish team-mates, Seamus Coleman headed home to Killybegs as thousands lined the streets for his homecoming.

Afterwards, the Everton full-back greeted fans until the early hours of the morning.

On The Record

I’m proud because I worked… excuse the expression, but I worked my bollocks off until today and that’s what makes me the happiest and hopefully I can do that again in what I do next. For some lads it’s a foregone conclusion. For guys like me, it’s not. It might happen, it might not happen and there’s a bit of luck involved in that. Certainly the way things fell into place for me.”

After 15 years at the top level of rugby, Eoin Reddan spoke to Rory Keane about walking away, his memories and the future.

The Fixture List

There’s no Euro 2016 games tomorrow either but we do have some GAA action.

Cork take on Kerry in the Munster junior football final in Austin Stack Park at 7.30pm while, at the same time, Limerick and Waterford battle it out in the Munster minor hurling semi-final in Walsh Park.

Showbiz, baby!

Steve McClaren gave us one of the sweetest moments of live TV we’ve seen in a while as he appeared on Sky Sports News last night to cover the England v Iceland game.

Like all good comedy, it’s all in the timing.
