  • England fans heard singing anti-IRA songs again

    England fans sang anti-IRA songs during Tuesday's friendly in Italy despite efforts from the Football Association to stamp the chants out in the wake of last year's match in Scotland. England fans caused controversy last November when they chanted "F*** the IRA" during the 3-1 victory at Celtic Park. Any repeat during England's next match against the Republic of Ireland in Dublin on June 7 would lead to yet more criticism.

    A Cork based punter scooped a nice little earner on last night’s last night after winning €33,000 on a bet. The punter placed a single euro on four numbers to appear in last night’s main EuroMillions draw and fortunately they all came up. 8, 20, 24, and 28 were the lucky numbers for the winning bet - which was placed at BoyleSports.

    The pick of the bunch is the FlexShapeGripper, a grabbing tool that’s modelled on the incredible tongue of a chameleon. To catch prey, chameleons’ tongues act like suction devices, grabbing flies in an adhesive, form-fitting, interlocking hold. To replicate this, Festo’s gripper is made from an elastic, silicone cap that adapts to the object it is targeting. For example Robbie the Robot is a prototype machine made to assist Joanne O’Riordan, a Cork teenager born without arms or legs.
