Ireland have been eliminated in bizarre, controversial fashion at the U17 Euros after goalkeeper Jimmy Corcoran was shown a second yellow card for moving off his line too early during the penalty shootout https://t.co/O48xsGehPhpic.twitter.com/yroYmS84ca
Lara Serviolle (above right), a member of the Irish Medieval Armoured Combat team, has won the IMCF Female Longsword World Championship!!
Lara is an amazing woman, living in Sligo and has stormed the medival Combat world winning the competition for the second time after her win in 2017.
She is an inspiration and deserves as much recognition as she can get!
10 fighters and supporters travelled over from Ireland for the event and over 500 fighters from all over the world fought in the 4 day event
Medival Armoured Combat is a full contact sport, fighters compete in full armour with swords, shields, axes, maces etc. We are trying to build the profile to the sport in Ireland and Lara is an amazing advocate!!
After securing a Champions League final place with a 7-6 aggregate defeat of Roma, Liverpool players unfurled a banner paying tribute to Dubliner Sean Cox, who remains critical following an alleged assault at the home leg ln Anfield.
Absolutely boiling listening to Willie John on #TodaySOR absolving Paddy Jackson, Stuart Olding from their horrendous lack of respect towards women. No way should they ever put on a green jersey ever again.
The Irish Women’s Team had a world cup qualifier game against The Netherlands (Euro Champs) last night. We lost 2-0 but are still in the running for qualification.
I’ve been very impressed with the growth of the women’s game in Ireland, albeit a decade behind other countries, this particular team are exciting to watch especially Denise O’Sullivan [player of the match].
Despite this exciting time for the sport, I’m left wondering why our national broadcaster is not showing their games?
This competition is a big deal or do RTÉ just pick and choose when they want to play the equality game (I know terrible word play).
