The Weekend of Sport on Social Media from one of the greatest Munster Hurling Finals of all time to defeat for the Republic of Ireland in Armenia, 20,000 Women running in the VHI Women’s Mini Marathon, and Irishman heading to the World Cup in Qatar and Leona Maguire’s first Major Top Ten finish at the US Open.


From the high of an outrageous piece of skill to tie the game at 70 minutes through to heartbreak after extra time the Munster Hurling final was a game for the ages and there are plenty who would back a repeat again in the All Ireland Final…


The idea of the roaming goalkeeper has been among the stories of the GAA summer so far and Armagh’s Ethan Rafferty brought it to another level on Sunday with not one but two points from play, including this to end Tyrone’s hopes of a repeat All Ireland.

Iga Swiatek has been wearing a ribbon for Ukraine in the 100+ days since the Russian invasion.  She has not lost a match since doing so and on Saturday lifted the French Open in Paris.  Eurosport followed her story to the title.



20,000 took to the streets of Dublin in celebration of the return of the Women’s Mini Marathon.  It’s a special day and great to have it back.



It did not work out as we had hoped in Yerevan on Saturday with the Republic of Ireland losing to Armenia in the opening round of the UEFA Nations League, but two home games to come this week against Ukraine and Scotland and at least the social media graphics looked very smart…


But there were happy football moments for one of our own. Noel Mooney is the CEO of the Football Association of Wales and they are heading for the World Cup Finals in Qatar this November and December.


Leinster had an easy run out against Glasgow to make it to the Semi-Finals of the United Rugby Championship. Things were closer in Kingspan Stadium on Friday night but there was a lot of classy rugby on display…

and finally, well done to Leona Maguire who secured her first Major Top 10 finish at the US Open in North Carolina over the weekend.
