A host of famous Irish faces have been at Wimbledon, and actor Jack Reynor and his fiancee Madeline Mulqueen were at the finals over the weekend.

Madeline took to her Twitter account to share a picture of her "Wimbledon essentials" which included a sun hat, sparkling trainers and sunglasses.

"Seriously excited to see Serena whack some balls on Saturday," she wrote.

Other celebrities who have been spotted at the tournament include Brian O'Driscoll, Amy Huberman, Ronan Keating, Storm Uechtritz and Brendan O'Carroll and Jennifer Gibney.

Berkeley fundraiser

Galway Girl singer Mundy is set to headline a fundraiser for the victims of the Berkeley tragedy.

The Academy in Dublin will be the venue for an official fundraising event on July 23.

It aims to raise funds for those students who have been left with life-altering injuries following the balcony collapse accident that happened last month in Berkeley, California.

Nicky Byrne will be the host on the night, and a big number of Irish bands and DJs will take to the stage to show their support for the cause.

Acts include Jape, The Fontaines, the Dublin Gospel Choir and more.

Tickets are on sale now from ticketmaster.ie.

They cost €25 with the option to donate an additional €5, €10 or €15.

The motor manufacturer is giving youngsters aged seven to 13 the chance to win the momentous prize of leading the team on to the pitch for their match against France on October 11 at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

To be in with a chance of winning the coveted Rugby World Cup 2015 mascot place, entrants must create a short video or photo demonstrating why they would make a great mascot and submit it to Land Rover Ireland's social media channels along with the hashtags #WEDEAL- INREAL and #Ireland.

The closing date for entries is July 24.
