In preparation for Dublin’s 2016 centenary year St Patrick’s Day parade, a series of workshops took place with young people around Ireland to discuss their hopes for the future. The result is an explosion of colour and imagination as the theme, ‘Imagine if…’, celebrates our national vision for the next 100 years.

HEARTIEST congratulations to three Irish swimmers who claimed the country’s first medals at the Special Olympics World Games in Los Angeles. Perhaps they were spurred on by the words of encouragement for the Irish team from actor Colin Farrell and footballer Robbie Keane. It is heartening to see Irish celebrities taking such an interest the games.

Peter Lawrie did not know he would be playing at Wentworth until Monday afternoon but he had plenty of reasons to thank European Tour chief executive George O’Grady for the tournament invitation that could help him regain his Tour card for next season.

I SPENT a good deal of last weekend at the Special Olympic Games in Limerick. And a glorious weekend it was. A wonderful, intimate, family-focused opening ceremony on Thursday night was followed by three days of intense competition in the variety of sports in which Special Olympic athletes compete. A lot of the Games was centred on the University of Limerick campus, and the place couldn’t have been more welcoming.
