iandy Lee has become Ireland's first middleweight world champion since 1934 - after a sensational victory in Las Vegas last weekend. It is truly a remarkable achievement for the Limerickman and proves that when it comes to the ring, Ireland is continuing to produce world beaters. We all toast and rejoice in his great victory.

SSINEAD O'Connor has said that she was abused by a member of Sinn Fein as a child. Now the singer has announced to the world that she is joining the party. She hopes that the Shinners will deliver equality, rights and justice for all the children of the nation. Of course, anyone is free to join any party they wish but, frankly, this is a bizarre beyond belief.
