Leinster's Jonathan Sexton tames Stade Français to secure Amlin Cup

Any good news for Leinster is suddenly good news for the Lions and there were plenty of happy faces in Dublin on Friday night. A fly-half masterclass from Jonathan Sexton did much to ensure his province hoisted the Amlin Challenge Cup aloft, although his fellow Lions tourist Sean O'Brien did limp away prematurely with a knee injury. Warren Gatland, the Lions head coach, can only cross his fingers and wait.

The History of the Bodhrán.

The word Bodhrán is said to mean Deafening or Thunderous Drum. The history of the Bodhrán is shrouded in mystery and subject to speculation. Is it an ancient Irish instrument or did it originally arrive on our shores from some far off place? Some historians believe that its roots in Africa and arrived here from Spain, others believe that it had its origins in Asia and arrived here with the Celts. There is evidence of the use of an instrument very similar to a Bodhrán that was used in agriculture and this was called a Wight or Wecht in Ulster and a Dallán in the south west of Ireland.
