All Ireland finals

After the dramatic draw on September 1, the Dubs and Kerry have to do it all again this Saturday (September 14). Tickets are like hens’ teeth but there’s nothing to stop you inviting a gang around or dropping into your local to cheer on the boys in blue. However, you should be able to pick up a ticket for the other All Ireland final on Sunday, September 15, when the girls in blue take on Galway.

Walk While You Can 5K

When the remarkable Fr Tony Coote did his extraordinary walk last year from Donegal to Cork – some 550 kilometres – he raised over €600,000! The proceeds were split between the IMNDA and Research Motor Neurone.

This Saturday the Walk While You Can 5K is being held in Fr Tony’s memory as he sadly passed away on August 28. However, his wonderful legacy of action and inspiration will continue to live on and Walk While You Can continues to raise urgently needed funds for people living with MND.

The 5k route starting point is at the soccer pitches on Acres Road in the Phoenix Park (near the papal cross car park). Visit for more details.

How will Bríd cope in her old haunts? How will Ciara confront a past she thought forgotten?
