  • Now that autumn is in full swing and the routine of school and various activities ongoing, there’s barely a minute to cook dinner let alone do the washing up afterwards. Ar this time of year, I look to one-tray crowd pleasers for dinners that I can easily prepare hours beforehand, or the night before. Vegetables can be chopped, meat marinating and meals planned.

  • Barometer


    It’s 9.30pm on a Tuesday, and a slight young woman with short hair and tattoos is standing with a pile of cardboard in the porch of a shop on Henry Street in Dublin. She looks fit and well and very alert, but the way she is standing is defensive and wary.

  • In a Word . . . Barber Patsy McGarry

    It was at the barber’s last month when I realised that what had passed for this summer was well and truly over. It was busy, mainly with some teenage boys and one strong mother who, with a mixture of charm – directed at the barber – and firmness, before which there was no deviance – directed at her sons – had her way. She was not for turning.

  • ‘It’s no surprise to me that Ireland are the number one side’

    Charles Salesi Piutau looked out the hotel window at the shards of lightning that briefly illuminated a charcoal sky as a thunderstorm passed over Paris. There’s a temptation to use the elements as a metaphor to link nature’s force with a force of nature that will be let loose on Ireland at the Stade de la Beaujoire, but it seems a little overwrought, a misdirected pass at describing a...

  • Murray still taking nothing for granted

    The old one-two, or 9-10 to be accurate, are back in harness again for Ireland. Conor Murray and Johnny Sexton will today start their 69th Test together, second on the all-time international list behind George Gregan and Stephen Larkham. But not even the enduring Wallabies legends could claim to have played together in four World Cups, which has to be a unique achievement for the Irish halfback...

  • Fiji primed for do-or-die Wallabies clash

    Fiji coach Simon Raiwalui said his team had tried to put the heartbreak of losing to Wales behind them as they turn their attention to the do-or-die Pool C clash against Australia at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard this weekend.

  • How the life of Seán Brennan encapsulates the GAA for me

    When you hear people say “this is the life”, it usually means they’re doing something they don’t often do – drinking wine in a palazzo in Florence, or dipping their toe in the Pacific Ocean. Moments like those were not really to the forefront of my thinking when I was picking the name for my debut book.

  • Expect more of The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

  • Ex-Ireland player Jones cautiously bullish about South Africa’s chances

    Felix Jones flashes a cursory smile as he walks into the downstairs room of the team hotel in Toulon with South African media officer Zeena Issacs-Van Tonder. Taking his seat at the top table, the 36-year-old, folded arms on the table and leaning forward, looks tentative. Jones has been rotated to “do media” the week before Ireland meet South Africa in their third Pool B match of the Rugby World...

  • Postecoglou could be the one Spurs have been waiting for

  • This week’s soccer fixtures


  • Tonga to cause pain but Ireland can withstand it

    The more this game nears, the more it seems to grow in interest and significance. In part it’s because of the novelty value – this is only the third occasion these countries have met and the first time in 20 years – and also because Ireland need to carry as much positive energy and momentum into next week’s crunch Pool B meeting with the Springboks.

  • Ireland’s economy cannot survive without immigrants

    Is it time to discuss policy on immigration to protect liberal, open, tolerant Ireland? Regular readers may be aware that as the grandson of immigrants, my DNA is cosmopolitan and sees immigration as a hugely positive force in our economy and our society in general. However, it is not Ireland’s attitude to immigrants that is undermining the sustainability of immigration, it is the inability to...

  • Rebel rising: behind Cork’s 1973 triumph

    Iconography “Ray Cummins up along the wing now to Jimmy Barry-Murphy. Jimmy Barry on the ‘14?. What’s he going to do? A goal! There he is. The young man with the goalscoring touch. He may be only 19 but he surely joins the football immortals.” – Michael O’Hehir.

    I am lying on my living room floor, beneath my front window, amid a gun battle between the IRA and the British army. My Daddy is on one side of me, on the floor, my Mummy on the other. “We’re being crucified,” my Mummy says as she always does when gunmen open up. Daddy takes my hand and squeezes it. “Don’t worry, Adrian,” he says, “if you hear the bullet, it doesn’t have your name on it.”
