Acne? We sat for a moment, staring at each other across a table: the tennis player who didn't read and despised journalists, and the journalist who despised tennis players and wished he was someplace else. I wearily unwrapped my tape recorder and was reminded of a passage by Gene Collier, a gifted American sportswriter: "How stupid is this? I don't want to wait for this guy. This guy doesn't want me to wait for him. I know what he's going to say. He knows what I'm going to ask. The readers know what I'm going to write. And I know what they're going to say if they read it." But Murray was a surprise. There were no reservations sitting down with Stephen Kenny. He was more than twice Murray's age, had never used Clearasil, and enjoyed a reputation as one of the nicest and most interesting men in football. He talked politics with John Hume and read books on Jim Larkin. He was a friend to the homeless and celebrated fair play and values. He wrote a column in the match programme at Dundalk … [Read more...] about Paul Kimmage meets Stephen Kenny: ‘I realised, I don’t care what people think, I know as much as anyone’

PUBLISHED: 17:00 13 September 2018 Kenwood House is being spoilt by its need to hold events for its funds. Picture: KEN MEARS Archant Letters, contributions and comments sent in from Ham&High readers this week. Government cuts to blame for state of KenwoodBill Rodgers (Lord Rodgers of Quarry Bank), Highgate Village, full address supplied, writes:When I walked across to Kenwood House on Sunday I was shocked. The fine appearance from the terrace was desecrated by more than a dozen tents or marquees with a few leisurely workers removing scaffolding and a number of white plastic bags blowing across the Pasture Ground. I had been unable to visit Kenwood for several weeks but I was aware of controversy about commercial events.I will not go into details of past correspondence in the Ham & High except in one respect. I think that the Kenwood manager has said that Kenwood House needs to be self-financing. But, the problem is not rising costs or an act of God but an Act of … [Read more...] about Ham&High letters: Kenwood House, Belsize Park Co-op, MP twitter blocking, medicines post Brexit, CS11 and pedestrian safety
Amy Adams, who plays the lead, has always been easy on the eye, but that first hour is not an easy watch. The town is a kip. Camille is an alcoholic. Her mother is a wagon. Her phone has a broken screen. Her car is an absolute wreck. Something really shitty has happened to this woman, but the plot is showing no inclination to thicken. The final scene has Camille taking a bath and I'm just getting interested when the credits roll. My wife, who has read the novel, fixes me with a look. "Did you see it?" "See what?" "Show me the remote." She freezes the last frame and the penny finally drops. "Jaysus". Camille's body is covered with scars. There were no scars showing the first time I met Sean Cavanagh. It was the winter of 2012 and we were guests on iTalk Sport, a sports magazine show on Setanta TV. I had been working out of London when he won his three All-Irelands and knew little about his life or the place that had formed him, but he struck me as an absolute gentleman and a rock of … [Read more...] about Paul Kimmage sits down with Sean Cavanagh to talk retirement, the McManus ‘incident’ and how he ‘never really knew’ Mickey Harte
Charles Moore 14 July 2018 9:00 AM 14 July 2018 9:00 AM Share Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Email Whatsapp Why do the British turn to the Germans in their moments of European trouble? It never works. When Jacques Delors conceived his single currency plans, Mrs Thatcher over-relied on Karl Otto Pöhl at the Bundesbank to squash them. Dr Pöhl preferred to side with Helmut Kohl. When Britain was struggling to stay in the ERM in the late summer of 1992, the Major government put faith in what they thought were German promises to help them out. These failed to materialise. When David Cameron sought a new EU deal which would win him the 2016 referendum, he placed his greatest hopes in Angela Merkel, who offered him concessions so feeble that even he quickly gave up trying to sell them. Last week, Mrs May flew to Berlin. There is nothing wrong, of course, with trying to reach over the head of Brussels to do some bilateral diplomacy with a great European power, … [Read more...] about Why did Theresa May ‘clear’ the EU deal with Merkel before consulting her colleagues?
