From top: Hillary Clinton, Chelsea Clinton and Bill Clinton; Trina Vargo and her new book on US-Irish relations

The new book called ‘Shenanigans: the US-Ireland Relationship in Uncertain Times‘ is written by former Democratic foreign policy advisor Trina Vargo, who runs the scholarship programme, which is named after former US senator George Mitchell,

Ms Vargo writes that in November 2000, Mr Mitchell told her that he had received a call from Mr Clinton, saying he was unhappy that Chelsea’s boyfriend had not been shortlisted for the scholarship to Ireland.

Chelsea’s boyfriend did not get the scholarship. In 2012, the US State Department, then under Mrs Clinton, cut funding to the Mitchell scholarship, citing budgetary measures.

…A spokesperson for the Clintons has told RTÉ News that the claims are “baseless and patently false”.

While the film features Terry, Torres and Mata, the stills for the print and online executions – also shot by Zibert – feature additional players including Demba Ba, Gary Cahill, Petr Cech, Eden Hazard, David Luiz, and Oscar.

Fair play though, in fairness.
