LOI: Battle Of The Rovers As Roddy Aims To Defeat Champs


Shamrock Rovers –v- Sligo Rovers    7:05

Early league leaders Shamrock Rovers host fellow title hopefuls Sligo Rovers at Tallaght Stadium.

Goals from Gary McCabe, Ronan Finn and Kieran Marty Waters gave the hoops an impressive 3-1 away win over fierce Dublin rivals Bohemians last week. That win established them as early league leaders, a position that will leave manager Trevor Croly pleased. They face a Sligo Rovers side in poor form and Croly and his players will look for all three points as well as a psychological advantage. Continue reading


Gardens Galore: Finding A Good Season Ticket


While optimistically looking forward to spring, I decided to investigate the options available for buying garden season tickets within easy reach of Dublin. I began with my old favourite venue Airfield garden and farm. I’ve always meant to purchase a garden membership at least once in the fond hope that it would encourage plenty of days out during the summer. I just never actually got around to doing anything about it. Having visited Airfield after its revamp has inspired me to look into the best value on offer. Continue reading

Picturesque Festina Lente A Charm To Withhold

This weekend I discovered a new garden to visit, which has the bonus (for me at least) of being easy to reach by public transport, which I find is not always the case for many venues. The garden lies just outside the centre of Bray and is one of several gardens open to the public in Co. Wicklow. I found this one by simply typing ‘gardens in Dublin/Wicklow ’ into Google but while at Festina Lente, I found information on more gardens to visit. I picked up a leaflet, which lists twenty-two gardens open in 2013, ranging from large gardens such as the National Botanical Gardens at Kilmacurragh (52 acres) to private gardens such as Coolaught Gardens. The latter sneaks in despite being situated in Co. Wexford but we won’t quibble about that. There is plenty of scope in Wicklow Gardens 2013 for summer visits, but for now, back to our weekend trip… Continue reading

St Patrick’s Athletic –v- Bohemian FC    5.00


St Patrick’s Athletic are looking to bounce back from an early season defeat as they take on Bohemians at Richmond Park.

A disappointing 3-0 defeat at the hands of Shamrock Rovers was not the result that Liam Buckley and his side would have envisioned. They can take comfort from the fact that it is very early in the season and to take this opportunity to improve their overall game.

Bohemians will also be happier with their last result, also against Shamrock Rovers. It has been a mixed start for Bohs – one win, one draw and one defeat shows inconsistency, but like Pat’s its early days and a lot can change.

Prediction: Home win
