On The Record

“Shep The Dog would win a championship with them lads, I’m telling you, they’re that good. We train for hurling one week, we train for football the next week and that’s it. There’s no problem, there’s no issue, there’s no bickering and long may it continue.”

Cratloe’s jubilant manager Colm Collins after his club claimed a second county senior title in a week.

The best thing we shared

Watch Darran O’Sullivan’s soccer-style finish and two trademark Kieran Donaghy moments from the Kerry SFC semi finals.

The fixture list

  • Ireland take on world champions Germany in Gelsenkirchen, so you can get behind the Boys In Green from 7.45pm when the action kicks off.
  • There are lots of other EURO 2016 qualifiers, including fellow Group D teams Scotland taking on Poland, and Northern Ireland are looking to continue their winning start to the competition against Greece.

Showbiz, baby

Boris Diaw definitely has one of the most unusual, contract clauses. He’s set for a
$500k bonus if he doesn’t gain 5 pounds in the next 6 months. Best stop sipping those pina coladas then, eh Boris?
