  • Irish players are struggling in England – maybe the time is coming to fulfil ambitions elsewhere

    For an awful lot of English clubs, the next few days and weeks will define their season but even before the finer points of the profit and loss columns are there to be totted up by Martin O’Neill and Co, the early indications are confirming that, from an Irish perspective, it’s been another tough year. Sunday’s PFA awards made it seven years in nine without a Republic of Ireland player in the Premier League team of the season and as things stand there is not one of O’Neill’s players involved with the first-team squad at any of the top six clubs. At the other end of the table, there are, as usual, a few more centrally involved and O’Neill’s take on this club campaign may essentially come down to whether Hull City are relegated, as Steve Bruce’s side could well take four of his established squad members, plus young Brian Lenihan, to the Championship.

  • Kidd: Death threats against Perkins 'horrific'

    Jodie Kidd says the way Sue Perkins was treated by 'Top Gear' fans was "horrific". With both women being named the bookies' favourites to take over from Jeremy Clarkson on the BBC Two show, the 36-year-old model has slammed those who sent death threats to 'The Great British Bake Off' presenter on Twitter earlier this month, which forced her to quit the social media website. Speaking to BANG Showbiz, Jodie said: "I think [the way Sue was treated] was horrific, and I'm glad that [James May] stood up for her. At the time, Sue said that some of the threats she had received included one who "suggested they'd like to see [her] burn to death", while her timeline was also "full of blokes wishing [her] dead". q

  • Demonising Dissent

    An important report on the anti-water charge movement was released last week, written by Rory Hearne from Maynooth University. It surveyed 2,556 people and concluded that Ireland is witnessing the ‘birth of a new civil society’, an important development. The most significant consequence of the anti-water charge protests is that they are democratising the country. This is why elites are worried and have reacted hysterically: they want this popular movement repressed, and quickly. q

  • IBRC boss: Widen Siteserv probe to cover AIB and Nama

    The former chief executive of IBRC has claimed Finance Minister Michael Noonan should extend the Siteserv probe to include multi-million euro debt write-downs by AIB and Nama if he really wants to uncover the full depth of the situation. Speaking as fresh concerns emerged in the Siteserv saga, Mr Aynsley insisted his former company was not the only bank cutting deals for as yet unexplained reasons. When Siteserv was sold by IBRC in March 2012 to the Denis O Brien-owned firm Millington for €45m, the bank effectively wrote off €105m owed to it by the sold company, a decision former IBRC chairman Alan Dukes said on Friday was because of other elements in the agreement.
