  • Gruesome image emerges of Stephen Ireland’s leg after tackl

    Hughes revealed Ireland had sustained a calf injury that required "something like 12 or 15 stitches" - and a photograph published on Sunday in the Telegraph shows the huge gash in the 28-year-old's leg before the stitches were inserted. The tackle that caused the damage went unpunished, with the referee, Neil Swarbrick, allowing play to continue. The official and his assistant were strongly condemned by Hughes who said Figueroa should have been shown a red card. The manager also rated the challenge worse than the one made a week earlier by Burnley forward Ashley Barnes on the Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic at Stamford Bridge which drew so much attention.

  • Garth fallout: Laws on licences

    New event licensing laws could be introduced within weeks following a major review prompted by the Garth Brooks fiasco. The Department of the Environment has confirmed the first draft of the new laws has already been discussed by the review group which was established after the cancellation of all five Garth Brooks concerts in Croke Park last July. The issues being considered include the minimum timeframes before an event for the submission of an event licence application to a planning authority and the making of a decision by a planning authority on such an application, public consultation arrangements on event licence applications, and pre-application meetings the various parties.

  • Holly Willoughby: I didn't fancy my husband at first

    Holly Willoughby clearly doesn’t believe in love at first sight. The 34-year-old TV presenter has been married to TV producer Dan Baldwin for seven-and-a-half-years, and they have three children together. But Holly has confessed to Woman & Home magazine that when they first met, she didn’t even fancy him. The couple met while working on children’s show Saturday Showdown and Holly explained that after six months of knowing each other, she and Dan were “in each other’s pockets constantly”, and their relationship developed from there. q
  • Jennifer O’Connell: Men, keep your wandering hands to yourselves

    It’s unclear if John Travolta or the US vice-president Joe Biden ever saw Dirty Dancing. It came out in 1987, when Biden was working himself up for his first bid for the US Democratic presidential nomination and Travolta was getting together with Kelly Preston, so it’s possible they were both preoccupied (although I like to think Travolta might have dragged Kelly there on a date). How wonderful would it have been if Scarlett Johansson had turned to Travolta on the red carpet at the recent Oscars, when he was pawing greasily at her green Atelier Versace gown and doing a Nemo impression on her cheek, and said, “This is my red carpet moment.

    Common, often hidden, health issues after childbirth include pain, urinary and bowel problems, changes affecting sexual health and emotional health, and difficulties in intimate partner relationships. Women frequently just accept these health issues and do not talk about them or seek medical help; but they can be treated successfully. A major Irish longitudinal research project, the Maternal Health and Maternal Morbidity in Ireland (Mammi) study, is looking at the health and health problems of women during pregnancy and during the first year after the birth of their first baby.
