    Far too many players at Manchester United seem to be there just for the wages

    I hate matches between my boyhood club, Chelsea, and the team I played so long for - Manchester United.

That's because Chelsea now hold fourth place in the Premier League table, the one that holds the precious passport to playing in next season's Champions League. Frank Lampard's team are six points ahead of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team in the race to be fourth - and so United simply must win this game. Manchester United seem to throw in stupid results, against weaker teams, more often than the London Blues do. That makes this a total must-win match for Ole,

    Longford house to appear on RTÉ show this March

    Synchronised Swimmer, Ronan Daly and his partner Charles Lambert will appear on RTE's new show, The Great House Revival, this March, showcasing a lovingly restored house that they bought in County Longford. Kilgass was built as a gentlemen's residence for Sir Henry Bate Dudley, Baronet. He was the first rector of Kilglass Church. A major part of the house was built in 1804 for Sir Henry. Earlier parts of the house are thought to date from 16th/17th century as part of an old tower house. As the name suggests, Kilglass, meaning church with a grass/turf roof, was built on the site of a medieval monastery. The owners have a list of all the rectors of the parish of Kilglass who have lived in the house
