10th exam result
In those 110 years of competition the relationship has lurched from where Ireland got off to a decent start to one where wins were hard to come by, to where the period from the mid-1970s to the turn of the century was of virtually unremitting grief for Ireland. Paris became a negative result for the away side before a ball had been kicked. More recently we have come to look on the French as opponents who beat themselves before we can do it for them. At club level the trend has been mirrored. Irish players going to work in France bring with them an ethic and discipline that their hosts might find worthy but are uninterested in embracing. The one constant is that if the French could find the right balance between culture and circumstance they would rule the world. Brendan Fanning talks to Irishmen who have played against, or in, France, and are still trying to work it out. Terry Kennedy (64) (Ireland, 1978-81) I absolutely loved playing against them. Back in those days it never entered … [Read more...] about The madness of Les Bleus: Eight Irishmen on what it’s like to play in France

Brooke described the soap's decision to take the issue of knife crime as "admirable and very brave" and admits that Ben's loss "feels like yesterday."

They were the darkest of days on our streets. A decade ago a terrifying knife crime epidemic that had gripped Tyneside for several years appeared to be coming to an end. Between 2006 and 2009 a heartbreakingly high number of young lives were lost in knife attacks in our region. Many of the attacks were senseless in nature and happened when the victims - often teenagers - crossed paths with someone carrying a blade. And often the attackers and their victims had never met one another before. Police, campaigners and loved ones of those who lost their lives are sure to have hoped that these tragic days were behind us following a period of relative calm on our streets over recent years. But new figures released earlier this month show that knife crime is once again on the rise in the region. And nationally, knife deaths have reached their highest levels since the Second World War. The latest stats show police forces in Northumbria, Durham and Cleveland are now dealing with 19 knife crimes … [Read more...] about The victims who’ve lost their lives to senseless stabbings
