We should all make hay and enjoy a little sport while the sun shines

IT WAS a super holiday weekend for very many people across the country. It was dry, fine and sunny in most places with only the odd shower. So many people availed of the opportunity to get about and attend the plethora of sports and social gatherings.

In the Gaeltacht of Ring, in west Waterford, footballers gathered from the Irish-speaking regions all across the west and from Co Meath to compete.

In the Aviva Stadium our international soccer team showed flair beating Georgia. In Hong Kong Paul O'Connell and his fellow Lions set down a marker as they prepare for the tests against Australia.
