Q WHEN it comes to sports controversy, Brian O'Driscoll's two ghostwriters are no strangers to it. Paul Kimmage and Alan English worked together in 'The Sunday Times' and found themselves targeted by Lance Armstrong's legal team over allegations of doping. Both were ultimately vindicated for their journalism. Kimmage is a former professional cyclist and had numerous run-ins with Armstrong. He was known for his unrelenting lines of questioning during the Tour de France. Aside from cycling, the Dublin-born journalist has written on a range of sports, including football and rugby. He currently works for our sister newspaper the 'Sunday Independent'.
