The Road To Russia 2018: Who Are Ireland’s Star Performers?

By Evan Coughlan | August 29, 2017 | (No) | 204
The Republic of Ireland team have passed the halfway point in their World Cup qualifying campaign and as things currently stand in Group D, Martin and Roy’s Boys are level on points with Serbia at the top, and are only two goals behind them on goal difference.

However, before we start loading up th..

After 4 years, 186 appearances, 105 goals, and 80 assists, Brazilian winger Neymar has left Barcelona to join PSG in Ligue 1 for a world-record transfer fee worth £200 million (€222 million).

All-Ireland Hurling Semi-Final Preview – Cork vs. Waterford

By Evan Coughlan | August 12, 2017 | (No) | 245
Before the championship even began this year, the Cork hurlers were written off as a team who were going nowhere fast. After a poor 2016 season, where they were knocked out in the second round of the qualifiers to Wexford, everyone seemingly forgot that this is Cork hurling we are talking about and it would only be a matter of time before the Cork hurlers were back firing on all cylinders once again. Waterford on the other hand were expected to at least get to the semi-final stage again this yea..

The 5 Best Bets for the 2017/18 Premier League Season

By Adam Kenny | August 9, 2017 | (No) | 414
