'He's one of the best players I've ever played with. As a forward, I'd say he's the best.' Johnny Sexton

Sean O'Brien does not come from a traditional rugby background. He grew up on a farm in Tullow, far from the rugby hotbeds of Limerick and Cork or the fee-paying schools of Dublin.

Winging It - Tommy Tiernan
In nearly three decades as a performer, Tommy Tiernan has never wanted to play it safe. So, when it came to doing a chat show, he threw out the rule book: going in blind, not knowing who would turn up.
