I know sport is rarely your bag but we have a football series with a difference running on Setanta Ireland at the moment called Return Of The Rod Squad.
Next Monday night at 10pm the fourth and final episode airs – and among other things, it gearshifts from comedy to tragedy as one of Ireland’s most colourful and toughest men sees his club go bust and his players left without a job.

.Some lighter clips from the programme and full episodes of the original IFTA winning prequel The Rod Squad here.

On my cycle to work this morning, I passed a set of car keys on the ground at Leesons St Upper [Dublin]. Figuring a fellow cyclist has lost them, I went back to pick them up. I’m now trying to see if I can locate the owner! They’re for a Peugeot and have the owner’s bike lock key & house key on it! Can you ask your broadsheet viewers if they’ve lost their keys this morning?
