Last fall, my 8 year old daughter took up with a before-school group called Girls on the Run. It is, in summary, a very worthy “girl power” sort of organization that encourages girls to embrace exercise (with all the attendant long term social and psychological benefits) by training them up to run 5K races. It […](image)

I know it’s not really a sign of editorial distress…dctrojanCeltic gift advantage back to Rangers - Herald Scotland Sport SPL Celtic

Thu, 05 May 2011 12:30:50 +0000

…but it’s still mildly amusing to imagine that the sub-headline on this article about Inverness Caledonian Thistle beating Celtic in the SPL was the result of a man typing with one hand while mopping up tears with a bhoys-own hanky in his other hand.(image)

This blog was originally launched in March 2006 and showed signs of momentum with the Euro 2006 tournament. It tapered off and was last updated in late 2009.  I used to write in parallel at Conquest Chronicles and that effort has followed a similar trajectory.

It doesn’t happen all that often, so after being rude about the man before, I feel I must publicly agree with his rant during the Manchester United – Inter game last night: Tommy Smyth is absolutely right that John O’Shea is the first Irishman to come through United in years, because Irwin and Keane were […](image)
