  • How did this not go in!? Goalie produces save that’s been going viral

    The crowd were already celebrating a goal but that was before Kim Connors had her say, writes Stephen Barry. Connors was net-minding for Wicklow ladies footballers in the All-Ireland Intermediate Championship preliminary round yesterday. The underdogs were on the backfoot as Roscommon surged forward in a first-half attack, and a goal looked imminent when Jenny Higgins palmed the ball towards the empty net. Then Connors produced this dramatic save… Connors’ efforts have already got over 40,000 views between YouTube and Facebook in 24 hours. Wicklow went on to pull-off the shock too, with Amy Murphy scoring all four goals in a 4-13 to 3-9 win.

  • Ask the expert: Has my shouting damaged my children?

    Q I have always been a bit short-tempered and this has transferred over to my parenting. I can easily get wound up by my children, who are aged five and six, and I end up shouting at them. Last year was particularly stressful due to work and family issues and I was probably caught in lots of unnecessary rows with them. I went to a parenting talk recently which described the damage shouting can do, and it made me think about my behaviour. My older girl does not seem to mind as much and gives back as much as she gets – she probably has the same personality as me – but my little boy is much more sensitive and I know he gets upset. He drew a family picture a while back and in it I was shouting. I

  • Donald Trump may block French visitors

    US Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, has warned that people from countries such as France, which he says are compromised by terrorism, may be subjected to “extreme vetting” to deter attacks in the US. When asked if few people from overseas would be allowed into the US, Mr Trump said: “Maybe we get to that point”. For months, Mr Trump has been calling for a temporary ban on foreign Muslims seeking to enter the United States, and has criticised the Obama administration for continuing to admit refugees from Syria. On Thursday night, at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, Ohio, Mr Trump said the US “must immediately suspend immigration from any nation that has been compromised by terrorism, until such time as proven vetting mechanisms have been put in place”, but he didn’t refer to Muslims or to Syria, Iraq, and other Middle East nations.

  • Pictures show why the Manchester derby in China was called off

    There was huge disappointment when it was confirmed this morning that the planned game between Manchester United and Manchester City in Beijing was cancelled. There was a lot of interest in the first meeting between the two sides since both installed new managers - Pep Guardiola at City and Jose Mourinho at United. But pictures shared by Times journalist Paul Hirst show that the decision was inevitable given the state of the pitch. Recent bad weather has left gaps in the grass, with as much bare brown earth visible as greenery. It is tough on supporters who were looking forward to the game, but they can’t blame the clubs for not wanting to risk injury to their stars playing on a substandard pitch. q

  • Northern Irish group to launch Brexit legal challenge

    A legal challenge to Brexit is set to be launched in Northern Ireland. Former justice minister David Ford (pictured) is among a cross-community group of politicians and human-rights activists whose lawyers have written to British Prime Minister Theresa May urging her to consider the country's peace process and other unique requirements before triggering the mechanism to leave the European Union (EU).

Solicitors have threatened to take a judicial review before the High Court in Belfast - and ultimately to Europe's highest court - unless Mrs May addresses legal obligations they say she must meet, including gaining the consent q
  • Thousands of drivers set to get refunds after insurer’s collapse

    An Irish insurance underwriting agency that wrote business on behalf of Enterprise Insurance, the Gibraltar-based insurer that closed on Friday, said it will refund some premiums as 14,000 Irish motorists were hit by the collapse. Wexford-based Wrightway Underwriting entered into an agreement with Enterprise Insurance to offer motor insurance in Ireland through the Irish company’s broker network. “Wrightway has committed to helping its broker clients deal with affected policy-holders and with this in mind, Wrightway has decided to make an ex gracia payment to its brokers to pass onto their policy holders which is equal to the value of the premiums from now until the end of their current policy contracts,” it said in a statement on Sunday. A spokesman for Wrightway could not immediately say how much money was involved in the initiative nor how it would be funded.

  • Two Big Brother housemates walk out, then walk back in

    The Big Brother house was in turmoil on Sunday night, with two housemates walking out. In the latest instalment, the contestants were put to the test in a trial task, which saw each of them in the dock accused of crimes such as “being a mug” and “moaniness”. Evicted housemates were called as expert witnesses to give evidence. However, the task proved to be too much for Evelyn Ellis and Jason Burrill, who both demanded to leave the Channel 5 show. During her trial, Australian nightclub hostess Evelyn was told she was acting like a mug and that she should not chase Alex Cannon as he did not return her affections. Former housemate Georgina Leigh Cantwell was called in and told Evelyn: “I’m going

  • The scoreline in a Donegal club game has GAA fans questioning the future of football

    The end is officially nigh. Glenswilly played St. Eunan's in a Donegal county football league game today and the match ended on a scoreline of 03-02. Yep, three points to two. Pity the supporters who gave up a Sunday afternoon to watch a gaelic football game and saw a grand total of five points scored in the whole game. Local journalist Alan Foley was at the game and put the scoreline down to poor aim rather than the dreaded blanket defence - between the two teams there were 27 wides in the game. Winners Glenswilly notched all three of their points in the first half and there was only one point scored in the second half - a free for St. Eunan's. Football fans have not taken news of the scoreline q
  • Former landfill in Cork is leaking

    A former landfill south of Cork City, but operated by Cork County Council, has been leaking. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)is working with the local authority to rectify the issue. The landfill, at Raffeen, near Monkstown, was operated between 1979 and 2001, and, according to the county council, only accepted non-hazardous waste.

Afterwards, the local authority agreed to continually monitor the landfill, in accordance with the waste licence. Between 2005 and 2007, it installed protective lining, put in

  • Hulk will rock his Gladiator outfit in Thor: Ragnarok

    Marvel revealed some titbits of info about the upcoming Thor: Ragnarok during Comic Con this year. It showed off Hulk's distinctive Gladiator armour, which he wore in comics. This, it is believed, indicates that his storyline will draw from the Planet Hulk comics. Marvel also showed an amusing clip to explain what Thor and Hulk were doing during the events of Civil War. Apparently, Thor just needed some "me time," but was hoping for a call-up, while Bruce Banner was also waiting on the phone to ring. Hopefully this clip ends up online soon. Those in attendance got to see a shot of Cate Blanchett as Hela, but again we are waiting for this to crop up online. q
