It is after all the home of the GAA, and at the time of writing this their county hurling team have just won their 28th All-Ireland title, following a 3-25 to 0-20 point win over their huge rivals Kilkenny in Croke Park.

Dermot Keely Column: A good week for Irish Football

What a good week for Irish Football. Two great performances from the best 2 teams in the country – Dundalk and Shamrock Rovers. Both teams showed their character and their self belief.
