It was a classic All-Ireland women’s football final in Croke Park yesterday, which saw Meath stun the four-in-a-row champions Dublin in a major shock. It was no shock to seasoned watchers and admirers of Meathness – Murph gives us a run-down on just what makes the Royallers tick.

Leona Maguire is the first Irishwoman to play in the Solheim Cup, but she wasn’t content to get there – ever since the competition began on Saturday morning, she’s been a revelation. Her singles match this evening could be pivotal, and with Katie Taylor winning on Saturday evening as well, it was a very, very good week to be an Irish sportswoman.
