    'That was my final track race. She didn't even try to win the race she just tried to beat me'

    SONIA O'SULLIVAN'S relationship with running has changed over the years. Source: Tom Honan/INPHO Once an elite competitor with international ambitions on her mind, there was always a ready-made purpose behind her reason for running in those days. Success, medals, testing the limits, setting new race records and surpassing them. O'Sullivan measured herself against the best long-distance runners the world had to offer. Sometimes she had their number, sometimes they had her's. She never had to contemplate the targets that were worth chasing. They were already cast in stone for her. She just had to put one foot in front of the other and grab them. But things are different now. O'Sullivan turned 50

    'God willing' someone will take over lease from monks on Glenstal farm

    THE MONKS in Glenstal are like a family. And similar to farming families when there is no son or daughter - or in this case Brother - to take it over it can be either sold or leased. There was a lot of interest in recent weeks when the Brady Group advertised the lease of a 306 acre working dairy farm at Glenstal Abbey, Murroe.

    Laois man conned out of €300 in Done Deal drone deception

    A Dublin man conned a Laois man out of €300 by advertising a drone on Done Deal which he failed to deliver. At last week's sitting of Portlaoise District Court, Patrick Quaide (21), with an address at 15 Manor Place, Onger, Dublin 15, was charged with making gain by deception, at Cloneygowan, Portarlington, on December 27, 2017. Garda Karen Anderson gave evidence that on December 27, 2017, the injured party bought a drone on Done Deal and forwarded €300 to the accused's bank account, but the item was never sent to him. The accused had one previous conviction for a similar offence. This related to an incident in March 2017, when the accused posted an advert on Done Deal for a guitar and accessories.
