STEM, self-efficacy, and sport

In the past, sport was traditionally seen as the domain of men. Even today, there is a gender discrepancy in participation and intensity: men are more likely to play sport, and more likely to devote significant energies to it. This difference is neither good nor natural. But in order to consider why it’s not the […]

Transfers and title challenges: League of Ireland preview

A few months ago I wrote a piece asking students looking for a cheap alternative to the Premier League to give Ireland’s domestic league a chance. The Premier Division of the League of Ireland season kicks-off on the 16th February and to prepare you for the new season I think it’s important to understand how […]

MMA: a game of risks

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is one of the fastest growing sports on earth. It’s boxing, wrestling, kickboxing, karate, and more all mixed into one, which gives it a wide base of appeal. It also happens to be first-class entertainment, even for those of us whose usual punching target is the air directly above our heads. […]

In fact, writing that piece, and the research I did in the process, piqued my interest so much that I decided I wanted to […]

O’Neill debacle reflects poorly on FAI

Martin O’Neill’s appointment as manager of Ireland in 2013 was seen as a major coup for the national team. O’Neill was a Premier League manager with considerable pedigree, having enjoyed success at just about every club he had managed (Sunderland perhaps being the only exception). Speaking on RTÉ at the time, pundit Eamon Dunphy hailed […]

Jim Gavin: The modern day Micko?

RTE’s documentary on the legendary Mick O’Dwyer was an incredible insight into the mindset of the greatest GAA manager of all time. Micko is totally addicted to the game. A great scene comes at the beginning of the documentary: as Micko sits on a dingy boat off the coast of Kerry, he looks upon the […]
