First kick against the Phoenix will be 6 p.m.  Print Friendly Version Drake dropped road matches at Air Force and then No. 4 Denver this past weekend.

first_imgIrish Times athletics correspondent Ian O’Riordan has reported many of Ireland’s greatest sporting moments. He has rated Mark English’s bronze medal run as his moment of the sporting year. He also tips him for even greater things at the Olympic Games in Rio in 2016!This is his article in full. European ChampionshipsZurich, August 15thThe image of a perfect rainbow breaking out over the Letzigrund Stadium not long before Mark English toes the line for his 800 metres final.The calm look on the face of the 21 year-old from Donegal. Then the near perfect race and a bronze medal than shone almost as brightly as gold. There was definitely something precious about English winning that European Championship medal on that warm Friday evening in Zurich last August. All week, the Irish medal hopes had disappeared, including earlier that day, when World Champion Rob Heffernan dropped out of the 50km walk.Still, most of the expectations on the slender shoulders of English were his own: a blazing talent since his schoolboy days in Donegal, his obvious potential, coupled with his deep tactical intelligence, hadn’t yet been delivered on any major stage.This time there would be no mistake, and while it wasn’t gold, and for a while it looked like silver, winning the bronze brought much elation – especially amongst those of us watching up in the press seats.Soon, English was sharing a lap of honour with the other two medallists, victory going to Adam Kszczot from Poland, twice a European Indoor champion, who ran season best of 1:44.15. English clocked 1:45.03 to equal his season best, and in the process took out several more fancied medallists, including Pierre-Ambroise Bosse from France, the hot favourite who ended up last.“And sometimes they say bronze medallists end up happier in the long run,” said English, still in the thick of his medical studies at UCD, and with the promise of much more to come. Seb Coe, one of his heroes, was also 21 when he won European bronze over 800m, in 1978, a little teaser perhaps of what English might ultimately be capable of, on the run towards Rio 2016 and beyond.IRISH TIMES DECLARE MARK ENGLISH’S BRONZE MEDAL ONE OF MOMENTS OF SPORTING YEAR was last modified: December 30th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:athleticsdonegalletterkennymark englishlast_img read more

first_img1. Millennium BridgeLondon wasn’t the only UK city to mark the turn of the millennium by building a bridge. The Millennium Bridge connects Newcastle on one side of the Tyne with Gateshead on the other, though it’s only the latest in a series of imaginatively designed bridges connecting these two Tyneside cities. This pedestrian bridge is designed to look like a blinking eye. The bridge tilts up and down for passing ships. Walk across the bridge to feel it swaying slightly beneath you. It looks particularly good at night, when illuminated in bright colours.Address: Baltic Square, S Shore Rd, Gateshead NE8 3AEhttps://instagram.com/p/aTwQzEsJm-/2. The BalticWalk across the Millennium Bridge and you’ll get to the Baltic, Newcastle’s answer to the Tate Modern: an industrial flour mill turned free modern art gallery. Don’t be put off visiting if modern art isn’t usually your thing, and art apart the views from the lift up to the viewing platform on Level 5 are the best in the city – across to the famous Tyne Bridge (which you’ll recognise if you’ve ever seen the Great North Run on TV) and beyond.Address: S Shore Rd, Gateshead NE8 3BAOpening hours: 10am-6pmCost: Freehttps://instagram.com/p/yNaAh9S8uQ/3. The SageA short walk down the river from the Baltic, you’ll find an unusual-looking concert venue called the Sage. Like the Baltic, the Sage is technically not in Newcastle but in Gateshead. This unusual structure divided opinion when it was first opened in 2004 but, whatever you make of its avant-garde design, it has become the area’s premier concert venue. Even if you don’t come for a performance, you get a great view of the quayside, and there’s a lovely cafe.Address: St Mary’s Square, Gateshead Quays, Gateshead NE8 2JR4. Newcastle CastleCrossing back into Newcastle-upon-Tyne proper, it’s a short walk to the castle that gave Newcastle its name. Recently reopened after a lengthy £1.67m refurbishment, Newcastle Castle tells the story of the city’s history, from its Roman origins to the present day. The £6.50 admission fee (£5.50 concessions / £3.90 children) gets you into both the castle keep and the Black Gate, the two buildings that the castle became after the railway split it in two in the 19th century. More fantastic city views are to be had from the top of the keep once you’ve absorbed the stories, sights and sounds around the castle’s ancient halls and passageways.Address: The Black Gate, Castle Garth, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 1RQOpening hours: 10am-5pmCost: £6.50 for adults, £3.90 for children 5. Laing Art GalleryThe Laing Art Gallery houses a superb collection of works by British artists, with a particular focus on local art, both past and contemporary. The gallery is especially noted for its watercolours and glassware, the latter a testament to the city’s history as a major producer of glass in the 19th century. Entry to the [Laing Gallery]() is free, and it’s open between 10am and 5pm Monday to Saturday.Address: New Bridge St, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 8AGOpening hours: 10am-5pmCost: Freehttps://instagram.com/p/tVTF8aC81X/6. Discovery MuseumThis free, family-friendly museum has collections on scientific and local historical themes. Newcastle was an important centre for the manufacture of ships, and in tribute the area’s maritime prowess, the museum’s large atrium is dominated by the 35m-long ship Turbinia, built three miles away in Wallsend and the first to be powered by a steam turbine.Address: Blandford House, Blandford Square, NE1 4JAOpening hours: 10am-4pmCost: Freehttps://instagram.com/p/vhCYtJxggn/7. Tynemouth for fish and chipsTake a trip to the seaside: it’s a half-hour journey on the Metro’s Yellow line down to Tynemouth. After a walk on the beach in the bracing Northumbrian air, and perhaps an amble around the ruined Tynemouth Priory, lunch on fresh fish and chips at Marshall’s on Front Street. Looking for a warmer beach in Britain? Here are some of the best in the UK. https://instagram.com/p/2Adi-Lqeyq/ 8. Visit the Angel of the NorthAnthony Gormley’s steel sculpted angel is almost 10 years old, having been constructed in 1998. The statue is 4 miles south of the city, and parking is available (don’t have a car? Don’t worry, the 21 and 22 buses go straight there!). https://www.instagram.com/p/BMq2T5uhUbC/ If you’re in need of a pint after all that culture…10 cheapest pints in the UK and where to find themExactly what it says on the tin: these wonderful pubs have pints for under £3.10 places to eat, drink and party in NewcastleHere for a game of footie?
