The Weekend of Sport on Social Media from tough defeats for Leinster and Liverpool to calls for ROG for England, might wins for Derry and Carlow, success on the Water at World Cups and Championships and the excess of pool parties in Monaco…

It was a tough defeat for Leinster Rugby on Saturday, coming within one minute of lifting the Heineken Champions Cup for the fifth time, but some huge personal achievement for Ronan O’Gara, now being talked up as a potential favourite to succeed Eddie Jones as manager of England…

 

If you were a Leinster Rugby and a Liverpool football fan it could not have gone much worse through one of the great sporting Saturday’s of the year.

Closer to home there were huge scenes of celebration in Clones as Derry GAA lifted their first Men’s Senior Football Ulster Title in 24 years…

Dublin secured the Men’s and Women’s Leinster Football titles at Croke Park on Saturday.  It was also the day of the AIG Jersey Swap where the teams carried the logo of #Support4Drummo on their shirts, fundraising carried on around the ground and the clubs and the Kildare team made a classy gesture even as they recovered from a sporting demolition…

There was plenty of sport taking place away from the biggest venues as well with Finn Lynch putting up a world-class performance in the Laser World Championships off the coast of Mexico…

 

In Rome, Denis Lynch became only the fifth Irish winner in the history of the prestigious Rolex Grand Prix of Rome in show jumping, and the first to win it for a second time following up on his first victory and Ireland’s most recent, in 2008.

 

And in Poznan Jenny Egan was winning Bronze for Ireland in the 5,000 metres slalom at the. World Cup event…

The Tailteann Cup got underway for most of the competing counties with eight games played to secure places in the Quarterfinals and move one step closer to a Croke Park Final.  Carlow caused the biggest upset of the day by downing a Tipperary side that only two years ago had been crowned Munster Champions, and giving a nice partnership boost to Sport for Business members the South East Technological University.

and finally, the Monaco Grand Prix has always been right up there when it comes to a little bit of excess but when your temporary high end hospitality area for the race has it’s own pool with the Red Bull logo at the bottom of it, just in case one of your drivers wins, that’s kind of next level…
