HRory McIlroy didn't get full recognition at the recent BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards, where he was overlooked by the public in favour of Lewis Hamilton. No such snubs on home turf though, as Rory was named RTE Sport Person of the Year this week. Turns out a prophet can be honoured in his own land after all!
IIT seems that ageing gangster John Gilligan can't keep his nose out of trouble. Exiled in the UK after a failed attempt on his life, the criminal has now managed to bring himself to police attention after verbally abusing a lawyer. I would have thought an old lag like Gilligan would have preferred to keep his head low - obviously not.
